Immunisation is one of the primary methods of prevention of disease. Through the Ministry of Health Herona Hospital has been availed with vaccines and a vaccine fridge so mothers will be able to immunise their babies at regular intervals as opposed to waiting a full month as the case was previously, with long waits on the day. This has all come about with the help of the district health officer Dr Tumushabe Elly and assistant district health officer and officer in charge of child and maternal health Mr Dumba Issac. Herona Hospital would also like to thank Mr Sserunjoji district cold chain officer in charge of immunisation, who trained staff on how to handle the vaccines.
All vaccines are given by the government and are FREE, prevention is better than cure.
