Question 7

This is false, but it is a common assumption. The major reason why children are not immunized against measles is because parents do not take their children to the health posts/hospitals to receive the free and safe measles vaccine. They may be busy or tired, not motivated to do so, or don’t know the way to the health post/hospital. Attractive and engaging messages which call for change of mindset to be more health-conscious and against cultural and religious beliefs can encourage parents to take their children and immunize them against measles.
