The World Health Organization was in attendance at the vaccination campaign through its representative, Boureima Hama Sambo, who encouraged citizens, noting that the different communities and their community leaders should try their best in their capacity to deal with misinformation, and also try to demand the vaccines as even with the number of cases and the vaccination campaign in the country, some citizens express their doubts towards the campaign.
