New Vaccines Introduction in Nigeria

Most recently the Nigeria immunization programme has reported improvements in its routine immunization coverage, further propelled by the introduction of new vaccines (Pentavalent, PCV, IPV, Rotavirus vaccines etc.). This will further strengthen the country’s efforts to significantly reduce childhood mortality and accelerate the achievement of the MDG 4. Also, there were only 6 cases of wild poliovirus cases reported in 2014; a drastic reduction in cases compared to the previous years. The new vaccines when completely introduced will help avert an additional 486,957 deaths over a 6-year period.
