In its efforts to maintain the potency of immunisation vaccines in its Primary Health Care centres, the Ogun Ministry of Health says it will evenly distribute Solar Refrigerators across the state.

Dr Babatunde Ipaye, the Commissioner for Health, said this while playing host to the members of Ogun House of Assembly Committee on Health who were on oversight visit to the Ministry.

Ipaye said that the development would help to preserve and maintain the potency of the immunisation vaccines as well as boost immunisation coverage  across the state.

He said more priority would be given to child health to prevent outbreak of childhood diseases such as polio.

Mr Akinpelu Aina, the House Committee Chairman, urged the ministry to seek for support from philanthropists to complement the state government’s efforts to boost health care delivery.

Aina commended the efforts of the ministry at stamping out quacks in the state.

He called for the upgrading of medical facilities across state government-owned hospitals in the 20 local government areas.

The lawmaker assured the ministry of necessary legislative support, saying that the health of the people was very important.
