“Children under five years will be immunised against measles, whooping cough, tetanus, Diptheria, yellow fever and Polio.
“The immunisation will be conducted in the 34 Local Government areas of the state.
“Vaccination of the children will be conducted by health personnel working with the State or Local Councils.
