Hepatitis Day: “Get tested and vaccinated now, it is no longer an option” JDPMC admonishes Nigerians

In the spirit of World Hepatitis Day’s commemoration particularly safety and prevention of high mortality rate in the country, Nigerians have been admonished to imbibe the culture of constant practice of proper medical check-up by subjecting themselves to Hepatitis test and vaccination.

The General Coordinator of the Justice, Development and Peace Makers Centre, (JDPMC), Osogbo, Rev.Fr.Peter Akinkunmi made this known in his World Hepatitis Day’s Message.

Fr.Akinkunmi noted that getting tested in order to know one’s health status and vaccinated respectively were no longer optional considering the death rates recorded so far due to Covid19 pandemic and other underlying diseases. He added that it was important Nigerians learned how to prevent the worst from happening rather than fighting it.

He therefore enjoined Nigerian to cultivate the habit of regular health maintenance and medical check-up which he described as a key to a sound living and long life.
