According to Dr. Faisal, the integration is to ensure that preventable childhood diseases are not neglected in the face of the response against the COVID-19 pandemic.

He also calls on Nigerians to take advantage of the ongoing COVID-19 vaccination campaign across the country and get protected against the virus, as new variants continue to emerge in parts of the world.
