Sokoto State Governor, Alhaji Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, Sunday launched the 2017 measles vaccination campaign with a target of reaching one million children across the state.
Speaking  in Gwadabawa Local Government Area of the state, Tambuwal said all necessary arrangements had been concluded for a successful exercise.
According to him, the one million children targeted is realistic considering the fact that the vaccines will be administered in two phases.
He stated that 12 local government areas would be covered in the first phase, while 11 local government areas would be covered in the second phase.
The governor said the state government and development partners had already committed huge resources in order to eradicate measles and other killer diseases among children in the state.
