Adhere To COVID 19 Guidelines -FCT PHCB

Residents of the Federal Capital Territory have been enjoined to continue to protect themselves against COVID 19, as the Virus is still very much in existence.

The Head Advocacy, Communication and Social Mobilisation FCT Primary Health Care Board, Hajiya Nana Hauwa Yusuf gave the advise during a one day media parley in Abuja titled: “Agenda For Dissemination Of COVID 19 Survey Findings And Stakeholders Meeting To Improve The Uptake of COVID 19 Vaccinations in the FCT.”

Hajiya Yusuf while stressing that prevention is better than cure, said hand washing, observance of the COVID 19 safety protocols, and COVID 19 Vaccinations still remains the best way to build immunity against the Virus.

Hajiya Yusuf who said that acceptance of the vaccination would reduce the risk of spreading the virus, cautioned against hesitancy on uptake of the COVID 19 vaccine.

Hajiya Yusuf also expressed regret that Area Councils have not been able to reach the 30% of their target in the last three(3) months, even as she enjoined them to step up their games to hit the target of having all eligible persons in the area councils vaccinated.

She therefore used the medium to solicit the support of the media in championing the need for all residents to get vaccinated.

Pledging his commitment, His Royal Highness, the Chief of Garki, Usman Nga -kupi promised to continue to mobilize and sensitize the people at the grassroots to ensure that they get the right and latest information partaining to COVID 19 Vaccinations.

The Chief of Garki who also used the medium to call on the rural dwellers to jettison the assumption that COVID 19 Vaccinations destroy reproductive organs, appealed to residents to compliment government’s efforts by taking their Jabs.

In their various goodwill messages, the representatives of religious bodies, Pathfinder, World Health Organisation, Volunteers and UNICEF admitted that the vaccines still remained free and safe for human consumption.
