“This year in supporting what global community and Nigeria are doing we need to get more young people to speak out for vaccine and immunization,” he said.

He said the gesture would enhance students’ creativity in supporting advocacy programme and sensitize them on the value of vaccines.

He said the more young people speak out their need for immunization and vaccine, the more its strong way to send out the massage on how important to immunize children.
