DAILY LAW TIPS by Onyekachi Umah,Esq.(Tip 243)
“IT IS A CRIME TO FAIL IN CHILD IMMUNISATION.”
Every parent/guardian with custody of a child in Nigeria, irrespective of tribe, religion and wealth must provide full immunisation for such child under the age of 2 years.
Failure to do so, is an offence punishable with a fine not exceeding #5, 000 Naira for first time offenders but imprisonment for not more than 1 month for second time or more offenders and also an order that such child be immunised.
My authorities are sections 4, 5, and 278 of Child’s Rights Act, 2003.
