I got to know my team members and we set out trekking like Moses and the Israelites but not with rod but with a geostat that contains vaccines in it under the hot dry weather with no thermometer to validates its potency. We were also given a photocopied paper that represent our map of which am very sure was drawn by a 5year old in art class(if u follow am,persin go loss), this piece of paper includes our point and stops which mainly includes schools and worship centres with distance of at least 2km, this same paper indicated a bus as our mode of transport.
Through out the duty I was just cursing and swearing on my mind under the hot sun, if you touched my shirt....it looked like I just iron dried it, I walked till my legs ached still wondering how we will get 250 kids a day. I can't count the numbers of cold pure water me and my teammates drank even a certain woman gave us her zobo drink for free(May God bless her). I closed for the day with my collar stained cockroach brown.

Been my first time on the first day, I wore my best outfit to our meeting point at ward level, when I got there I saw 3 rickety bus (danfo)with banner hung on iT, the nurses even had disagreement because they were given a soap and a bowl to wash hand after each child vaccination because there was no adequate gloves....... there my brain told me I was in"naija" at that meeting point there were more than 10-15 vaccination team,the focal person who was in charge of that point gave us what they could provide for us and a target of 250 children under aged 5 per day but Before my team got vaccines the buses were already occupied and one out of 3 bus had brake failure immediately the driver ignited it hitting the building in front of it, I was grateful for them because it didn't happen on the road.

Before the d day we were trained on how best to carry out our duty ,we wrote a test as a recorder and were served a bottle of Pepsi nd 1 buns. the hall used was big but not enough to contain the crowd because most of them are party supporters(both very old, old and young) we were all looking for our daily bread.

This is one of the many fraud case within the health and local government board and the slave work we where made to do, they cared less about our health and sanity.
The measles program started on the 15TH of March with alimosho local government been the largest the first, we were split in this formation alimosho➡lg office➡ward➡vaccination team(consist of 2 nurse,2 recorder,1 crowd controller,1 announcer,1 spoke person)
in all of this, am still glad to be part of something big that all Nigerian children benefited from. thank you W.H.O
