Nursing mothers have been urged to regularly immunize their children/babies between zero and 59 months to curb infant mortality in Abia State.

The President of HannahMay foundation, Chief Mrs. Odochi Orji who threw the challenge as a guest of honor during the flag-off immunization programme organized by the State ministry health said that adequate immunization of new born babies will reduce the spate of death or infant mortality.

She enjoined pregnant and nursing mothers to avoid self medication, attend pre-natal and post-natal clinics as Abia state has standard and well equipped health Centers and Hospitals.

She further stated that the society will be better off when all nursing mothers and pregnant women avail themselves the facilities and services of professionals than patronizing the quacks, adding that the professional medical services should be made affordable by both government and private practitioners.
