The Plateau Police Command said on Thursday that it organised a free immunsation for pregnant women, children of its personnel and the public.
Mr Chris Olakpe, the Police Commissioner in the state, told newsmen in Jos that the exercise was for children from age zero to five years.
"Women's family planning issues will also be taken care of during the immunisation," he added.
According to him, the gesture is one of the command's corporate social responsibilities toward a healthy society.
The Commissioner said there were adequate vaccines for immunisation against different ailments and urged members of public to take advantage of the opportunity.
He used the occasion to introduce Dr Tunde Agbite as the new officer in charge of the command's medical services.
Dr. Agbite said that the immunisation would begin at 'A' Division Barracks, Jos, on Feb. 1.
"There are several advantages for patronising police medical services.
"While other conventional medical centres go on strike, the police clinics work at all times.
"Besides, we have competent hands and very good equipment to take care of the health needs of both police and the public," he stated.
