Expanded programme on immunization

Vaccinate at birth, protect for life


Committed and consistent

PGH has adopted standing orders to ensure that every newborn child is vaccinated. These orders detail that vaccination take place after a 90-minute bonding period with the mother that includes skin-to-skin contact and breastfeeding initiation. For all health facilities delivering babies, training and updating of antenatal care guidelines should happen to ensure prompt and proper vaccination.
