The entire womenfolk have been charged to use their Devine-given motherly role in encouraging citizens to oblige themselves and their families for the ongoing covid-19 vaccination in Adamawa state.

A beneficiary of the vaccination,Mrs Jessica Peter Nujori gave the charge Yesterday while answering question from this reporter on the efficiency of the vaccine in Mayo-belwa local government Area in the state stressing that women are opinion moulders in our communities and can add value to the advocacy.

Nujori who doubles as a civil servant and a house wife said as a result oriented strategy in reducing if not eradicating the spread of the pandemic(Covid-19) in our communities.

Nujori stated that she received her second jab recently admitting that the vaccination is good and that it has no negative consequences as being peddled in some quarters with a view to discourage other from taken.

“As part of the continued advocacy on the need for people to avail themselves for the Covid-19 vaccination to reducing the spread of the pandemic in our communities,Womenfolk needs to use their motherly role in sensitising people.

“With my experience in health department of Mayo-belwa local government,I am advocating that people should come out for the vaccination because it has no side effects rather improving our health condition”.Nujori advanced.

Another beneficiary of the vaccination,Ronald Richard said he was vaccinated on the 27th May 2021 and had the second jab six weeks after asserting that the vaccine is safe for human consumption.

Richard who confirmed to have received the poster dose some months ago explained that at the initially stage of the vaccination he experienced cool with running noise but later it disappeared after taking paracetamol drugs as prescribed by a Doctor.

“When I took the vaccination,I experienced a little cool and running noise but after administering paracetamol drug it went off .So l called on all and sundry to take it “.Richard advocates.

Earlier,the Director Health Education and Women Affairs (DHEWA),Nirus Ezekiel said the local government council has been organising sensitisation meetings with critical stakeholders including traditional and religious leaders,Leaders of NURTW ,Women groups,Education Secretary as well as security agencies.

Ezekiel announced that the council is having a task force committee on immunisation which introduced workable modalities in the convid-19 vaccination for all the 12 wards across the council which is yielding remarkable results.

He therefore appreciated the efforts of the development partners in health sector like UNICEF,WHO and other Non Governmental Organisations calling on other to emulate the gesture.

According to him a total of 49,276 residents representing 65% of the population have been vaccinated successfully noting that as from 27th June 2020 to 3rd July 2022 alone 3,557 people have been vaccinated with the vaccine.
