Ruth Kadiri on unavailability of vaccines for children | fab.ng

Nollywood actress Ruth Kadiri is raising awareness concerning the lack of essential vaccines for children in some Nigerian hospitals. Kadiri recently shared her experience on Instagram. She revealed that she took her daughter to the hospital for routine vaccinations but was turned away due to a shortage. The specific vaccines her daughter needed were for cholera, measles, mumps, rubella, and varicella (chickenpox).

She wrote,

“My nurse just informed me that there are no vaccines for babies at the hospital!!! Mothers, are you facing the same Vaccination issues? Federal Government, please look into this. My daughter needs her immunization. One year and counting.”

A post shared by Ruth Kadiri Ezerika (@ruthkadiri)

This encounter prompted Ruth Kadiri to use her platform to call on the Nigerian government to intervene. Vaccines play a crucial role in protecting children from preventable diseases, and their absence can have serious consequences.

By sharing her story, Kadiri is hoping to shed light on this public health issue and urge the authorities to take action. This will ensure these vital vaccines are readily available for all children in Nigeria.

The MMR vaccine is a superhero, protecting children from four nasty diseases: measles, mumps, rubella, and varicella (chickenpox). To make sure this protection is extra strong, it’s actually given in two doses.

The first dose is typically given to babies between 9 and 15 months old. Then, to ensure long-lasting immunity, a second dose is given when they are between 15 months and 6 years old. There needs to be at least a 4-week wait between the two doses for them to work best.

I love criticism and feedback because it helps you to become a better actor. You can’t be an actor if you’re not open to criticism,” he said.
