More Forced Vaccinations – Nigeria

July 31, 2011

A Nigerian state that has battled polio outbreaks has vowed to prosecute parents who refuse to immunise their children against the highly contagious disease, a health official said Thursday.

“The government will henceforth arrest and prosecute any parent that refuses to allow health workers to vaccinate his child against child-killer diseases, particularly polio,” the permanent secretary in the Kano state health ministry, Tajudeen Gambo, told AFP.

Parents would be charged under an already existing law prohibiting someone from denying children access to health care, he said. He said the law allows for penalties of jail time or fines, but he did not know how much for either.

Gambo said the government would also prosecute vaccine providers who refuse to report recalcitrant parents to the authorities.

“We have formed special surveillance teams and directed vaccinators to report any defaulting parent to such teams, and any vaccinator that fails to do that will also be prosecuted,” he said.

Thousands of vaccinators Thursday began a four-day door-to-door immunisation campaign of six million children in the northern state as part of a renewed international polio eradication drive.

UNICEF recently expressed concern over a resurgence of polio in northern Nigeria, where 20 cases had been recorded as at last week compared to 21 cases in the whole of last year.

Kano has so far recorded five polio cases this year compared to only one case in 2010 of the potentially paralysing disease, according to the World Health Organisation.

Between 2003 and 2004, the state suspended polio immunisation for 13 months following allegations by some Muslim clerics that the vaccine was laced with substances that could render girls infertile as part of a US-led Western plot to depopulate Africa.

It’s funny isn’t it. More vaccines everywhere than ever before, yet disease does not seem to have stopped. Oh and now everyone has AIDS. How’d that happen then? Notice third worlders are more aware of the danger of vaccines as they get the worst of them due to being ‘cut off’ from significant media scrutiny. Eugenics in motion. This is what foreign aid really goes towards (as well as propping up tyrants – Egypt, or making new ones – Libya), rather than those pretty water wells you see on tv. We need to cut all foreign aid to zero if we want any peace and prosperity in the world.
