WC Department of Health launches free Measles and Polio Immunisation Campaign

We closed off with Michelle Arnot - Provincial Manager and Pharmacist for the Child Health facility based programmes. She joined us to talk about their Measles and Polio Immunisation Campaign. The free Measles and Polio Immunisation Campaign for children under 5 years will kick off from Monday April 29th. The Western Cape Government Health urges parents and caregivers to sign the consent forms for their children to be immunised as consent forms must then be returned to the crèches where teams of health workers will immunise the children. Children not attending crèches should be taken to their nearest clinic for their immunisation to ensure they protect their children against measles and polio. Round one will commence from April 29th to May 17th and round two for polio from June 17th to June 28th. For more information visit your nearest clinic.
