The Kogi State Primary Health Care Development Agency (KSPHCDA) has distributed motorcycles and laptops to Routine Immunisation Officers (RIOs) to boost grassroots vaccinations across the 21 Local Government Areas of the state.

Speaking during the distribution at the agency’s headquarters in Lokoja, Dr Abubakar Yakubu, the agency’s Executive Director, said the items were received by the state from the National Primary Healthcare Development Agency (NPHCDA).

He said the items would enhance the performance of the routine immunisation officers for effective vaccination in hard-to-reach areas.

“This is to allow our immunisation officers to get to the hard-to-reach areas which are most difficult to get to at the grassroots. It will also enable us to transport our vaccines without any difficulty when carrying out routine immunisation to our people at the grassroots”.

He thanked the NPHCDA for supporting the state to improve in their immunisation coverage and data capturing.

He urged the beneficiaries to use the items for the intended purposes  aimed at  improving healthcare delivery in the state.
