November 2022: Sokoto North LGA begins polio immunization campaign

Nigeria’s Sokoto North local government area (LGA) launched a door-to-door polio immunization campaign on November 5, targeting thousands of children under age 5. The four-day effort piloted nOPV2 with a fractional IPV dose administered via PharmaJet’s Tropis needle-free intradermal injection system. If the approach is successful (defined as greater than 90% coverage for the pilot phase and a decrease in zero-dose children), the pilot may be replicated in other Nigerian LGAs (and beyond).
