I want you to join the effort of Lagos State Government to muscle in on measles in time like this, so that we can improve our immunization coverage to 100% this year.
Four things to watch out for:
- Our health workers will be coming into your houses, Crèches, into Nursery schools, to the Market, Mosques and Churches age 12 to 59 months. Kindly allow them.
- Give a written and verbal permission to your wards so that they can take care and immunize your children.
- Spread the messages to all the parents of eligible children.
- Dispel rumor that this campaign transmits disease. It doesn’t transmit disease but rather prevent disease. Let’s give our children a chance for survival.
There’s nothing mystical about healthy living, your outer bodily exposure determines your inner enclosure, and your contact defines your content! Every woman was created with a unique beauty! But to be overweight is to be “over shaped” which “overshadows” your natural beauty!

To be overweight is to be easily overwhelmed because excess weight is a depressing force for all the body functions Breaking universal health precautions makes you vulnerable to sickness already! Don’t be ignorant!
Measles has an incubation period of 10 to 12 days and thereafter the following symptoms ensue: fever, cough, nasal congestion, loss of appetite and malaise. Rash which appears on the face and neck, and then to other body parts. Measles is the 5th leading cause of under-five mortality and accounts for 50% of deaths of all vaccine-preventable diseases. Medical check-ups deliver from sudden physical breakdowns
The Law of Contact:
Your exposure will determine your enclosure. Your contact will determine your content! Maintain your hygiene. Every man is created to be fit and handsome but being overweight overshadows it all! It’s easier, cheaper and more re-assuring to prevent sickness than to cure sickness!

Food and Water safety is Life safety because, water accounts for 70% of adult body composition, while food is 30%. Many Sicknesses are manifestations of uncleanliness: unclean behavior and habits, unclean environment and unclean practice.
Health is not just an absence of disease but a complete state of physical, social and mental well-being! WHO
Sickness is poverty in advance, if unchecked, an entire life savings could be wasted on it! Over 183 outbreaks of Measles were recorded in 2016 in NGR, spanning about 158 LGAs. Measles is a viral infection transmitted by respiratory droplets from the nose, mouth, or throat of an infected person.
