The 6th polio campaign in Borno state took place between 15 -19 December


The 6th polio campaign in Borno state took place between 15 -19 December, as part of efforts to contain the spread of the virus after four cases were confirmed in the state in August. With the support of UNICEF and partners the emergency polio immunization covered twenty two Local government areas immunizing more than one million five hundred children under five years of age including those in internally displaced persons’ camps. The campaign included cross border immunisations in neighbouring Niger and Cameroon republics. UNICEF supported the campaign with the procurement of vaccines, medical kits and Vitamin A supplements as well as grassroots social mobilization using more than three thousand community mobilizers.
