“I feel elated and glad because I am working for the cause of the children who are vulnerable in the society. The most vulnerable group are children. I have contributed my quota in protecting them against the diseases that cripple them or kill them, so I am happy. I know that the book is going a long way to support families to understand the importance of immunization and continue to take their children without missing immunization and that way, the health immunity of the children will increase. The book is to send the message across of the importance of immunization such that the highly placed persons and the lowest placed persons in the society will understand the need to to immunize children. That is why the invitation cut across traditional rulers who are the custodians of the people must understand the importance of immunization and that way, they will now direct their subjects to take immunization without missing. I want to emphasize that immunization is important as they say prevention is better, easier and cheaper than cure”
Director of Immunization, Benue State Primary Health Care Board Makurdi, Mr Joseph Aza Korave
has said that he takes pleasure in protecting the children who are the most vulnerable in the society.
He stated this today in Makurdi while interacting with journalists shortly after the public presentation and launch of his book titled, ‘Simplified Guide On Route Immunization In Nigeria’.
Dr Korave urged people to write books in order to leave a legacy behind so that they will not retire and go with their knowledge.
He appreciated Governor Samuel Ortom and his Deputy, Engr Benson Abounu for their support which enabled him to achieve the feat.
