Ruth Kadiri, the Nollywood actress, has drawn the federal government’s attention to what she described as the “lack of vaccination in hospitals”.


Immunization is a process by which a person becomes protected against a disease through vaccination. Vaccination, on the other hand, is the administration of a biological preparation to help the immune system develop immunity from a disease.

In an Instagram post on Tuesday, Kadiri said she took her daughter to a hospital for a Cholera vaccine and MMR Varicella Immunization but was informed they had no vaccines to give.

The mother of two lamented that her daughter had not been vaccinated for over a year.


The film star called on nursing mothers to speak out if they face similar challenges.

The actress also pleaded with the federal government to take urgent action to tackle the issue.

“My nurse just informed me that there are no vaccines for babies at the hospital!!! Mothers are you facing the same Vacination issues,” she wrote.


“Federal Government pls look into this. My daughter needs her immunization. One year and counting.

“MMR Varicella! Cholera vaccines! Help our babies o!”
