The exercise is scheduled for 30th September – 3rd October, 2023 and would be conducted by vaccinators during House-to-House visits and immunization on the streets, worship centres, markets, motor parks among others.
This was disclosed in a joint statement issued by Kaduna State Primary Health Care Development Board and Journalists Initiative on Immunization Against Polio (JAP) in Kaduna.
