“One of the mechanism we used during 2023 was the monitoring flu cases, so we put surveillance at places that flu are predominant and we got our samples and currently in 2024, we have recorded 2 positive cases but this does not mean we shouldn’t get vaccinated because we have a target of 64.7% to meet so far as the vaccination is concerned.” He said
