Men-C vaccination underway in Western/Northern Division

July 17, 2018 7:02 pm

The first batch of the second phase of the Men-C vaccination is progressing well in the Northern and Western Division.

Health Minister Rosy Akbar says Fijians should remain proactive and look out for any signs and symptoms of the meningococcal disease.

She says Fijians in the Central and Ra sub-division were immunized in the first phase of the vaccination.

“The Men-C vaccination is not going to protect anyone for life. We need to be very vigilant about that. We need to understand the signs and symptoms and we also need to ensure that we get the first line of treatment should we have signs and symptoms of Men-C.”

Akbar is advising parents to be vigilant and take their children to the hospital or a health centre to receive the vaccination and ensure they provide consent for their children to be vaccinated.

Some of the symptoms that you should be alert for in babies are a high fever, unusual crying, refusing to eat or drink, vomiting, floppy or drowsy, changes in sleeping patterns, seizures or fits and a rash and or red or purple spots on the skin.
