The Daniel Onoja Foundation, an NGO, has organised free Hepatitis B vaccination and awareness campaign for police officers in the Federal Capital Territory.

The News Agency of Nigeria reported that the event took place simultaneously in the Force Headquarters, Force CID Clinic, Dei-Dei Police Barracks and the Muhammadu Buhari Police Hospital, Area 11.

NAN also reported that the event was organised in commemoration of the 2023 World Health Day, usually celebrated on April 7.

Mr Daniel Onoja, Founder of the DOF, said the medical intervention would afford the personnel the opportunity to know their status and get vaccinated.

He added that the hepatitis B virus which is deadly and dangerous had not received the most needed awareness and sensitisation it requires.

Onoja added that having been a product of a Police father and living in a Barracks prompted him to give back to society which made him what he is.

“We are doing this for humanity’s sake because we understand that the cardinal point of every nation’s development is dependent on the security, health and growth of its economy.”If the people who make up the country, do not have good health enough to carry out their duties, then there will be a challenge,” he said.

Onoja added that the foundation had already made arrangements for the three doses of the vaccine for those who are negative while assuring of its continuous support to the police.

Dr Emmanuel Garba, 15th Force Medical Officer, appreciated the foundation for the medical intervention.

Garba said that it would go a long way in protecting the health of the police personnel.

Hepatitis B is a potentially life-threatening liver infection caused by the hepatitis B virus.

Hepatitis B is spread when blood, s3men, or other body fluids from a person infected with the virus enters the body of someone who is not infected.

This can happen through 3exual contact; sharing needles, syringes, or other drug-injection equipment; or during pregnancy or delivery.
