The Kano State Government on Monday said it had vaccinated more than 90 per cent of children below the age of five years against cerebra-spinal meningitis (CSM) in the state.

The Commissioner for Health, Dr Abubakar Labaran Yusuf, disclosed this at a news conference as part of the activities to commemorate the World Health Day in Kano.

“We have vaccinated more than 90 per cent of the people at risk against CSM between November  and December  2013, which is above the 80 per cent standard requirement,’’ he said.

 He advised people to avoid sleeping in overcrowded rooms or places to prevent possible outbreak of the deadly disease.
