The Kaduna state government has called on parents and caregivers to make their children available for polio vaccination on March 23 to 28.
Hamza Ikara, the deputy director of the Kaduna state primary health care development agency(KDPHCDA), said this in a statement on Thursday.
The government says it will immunise three million children under the age of five years against polio within the five days.
The vaccination will done on the streets, from house to house, in markets and health camps in a bid to totally eradicate polio in the state.
Nigeria was declared polio-free in 2014, but the country had a resurgence of the condition in 2016, necessitating fresh rounds of vaccination across the country, especially northern Nigeria.
The ministry of health, the World Health Organisation, Japanese government, Dangote Foundation, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation have committed billions to the eradication of polio, since 2016.
