The Bauchi State Primary Health Care Development Agency has vaccinated 1,400 inmates and 240 prisons’ staff against  Cerebro Spinal Meningitis (CSM).

Adamu Gamawa, chairman of the agency, made this known in an interview with NAN on Thursday.

According to him, the proactive measure is to prevent the occurrence of the disease among prison inmates in view of the congestion in the prisons.

He said the measure would be replicated in similar public facilities to prevent the spread of the disease.

The chairman said that the agency had requested for more vaccines from the National Primary Health Care Agency to scale up preventive measures.
