Dr Raji Abdulrazaq, the state Commissioner for Health, gave the task while inaugurating the State Emergency Routine Immunisation Centre (SERIC) on Tuesday in Ilorin.
Abdulrazaq said the donated vehicles and equipment would strengthen the PHCs in the state.
Abdulrazaq noted that the equipment and vehicles would facilitate wide coverage of immunisation of children throughout the state.
Dr Michael Oguntoye, Director, State Primary Health Care Development Agency, said the state government and development partners were worried because of the problems in spite of the national routine immunisation.
Oguntoye spoke on the sidelines of the inauguration of the equipment.
According to him, the last multiple indicator cluster sampling in 2016 and 2017, shows that there is very poor performance in routine immunisation in the country.
He said the Federal Government, for the first time, accepted the report of the Multiple Indicator Sampling and declared a state of emergency on public health immunisation to protect the population of immunised children.
“As such, the state of public health emergency was declared on routine immunisation in the country, which brought about the establishment of the Emergency Response Centres on Immunisation.
“The objectives of establishing them is to ensure the responsiveness in the resolution of routine immunisation gaps in the country and to strengthen coordination for routine immunisation,” he said.
Oguntoye noted that the SERIC in Kwara, would among other objectives, identify bottlenecks and barriers to routine immunisation design and implement strategies to address the barriers, to increase coverage.
According to him, all eligible unimmunised children will be identified through tailored specific approach, while ensuring the availability of vaccines to local government health facilities.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that some of the donated items included two Hilux vehicles, laptops, computers, projectors, public address systems and photocopiers.
