Approximately 388,000 young women in Adamawa will receive a vaccine against cervical cancer

Human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccinations have recently begun in Adamawa State, and they aim to reach 388,180 female youngsters.

On Tuesday, Governor Ahmadu Fintiri launched off the exercise and provided the figure.

Girls between the ages of 9 and 14 are getting vaccinated against cervical cancer in various parts of the country.

After three months of house-to-house vaccinations in Adamawa State, anyone who hasn’t had one can get one at one of the state’s 226 primary healthcare institutions.

Fintiri’s representative at the Yola launch event, Adamawa State Deputy Governor Professor Kaletapwa Farauta, promised the crowd that the immunization will protect preteen and teenage girls against the cervical cancer virus.

Many countries have successfully implemented the vaccination. In these regions, cervical cancer is no longer a major health problem. ‘Necessary equipment, consumables, medications, and other supplies have been acquired and supplied to the facilities,’ the governor proclaimed.

Felix Tangwami, the country’s commissioner for health, has called on everyone of the appropriate age to get vaccinated.

He dispelled the myth that the vaccine’s intended effect is to decrease the human population.
