AUN Health Center Continues Free Vaccination Exercise

On April 5, AUN Health Center conducted a free vaccination exercise against four preventable diseases--tetanus, meningitis, hepatitis B, and yellow fever.

The hitch-free exercise was conducted at the e-library, where 421 students, faculty and staff trooped in to receive the vaccinations.

For some beneficiaries, it was the first time, while some others returned for the second dose of the hepatitis B vaccine. The program will be resumed on May 5, Chief Administrator of the Center, Phillip Eappen, said.

Some beneficiaries of the vaccinations also shared their thoughts on the conduct of the exercise.

“This is a very helpful measure that helps to protect the health of faculty, staff and students,” said SITC professor Behrouz Aslami.

“This type of exercise is what distinguishes AUN from other universities. The management cares about the health and well-being of the staff. They understand that only a healthy workforce strives and progresses,” said a staff of University Relations, Chiedozie Joseph.
