At the formal launch of the cold chain, UNICEF representative Felix Nnakwe, disclosed that Enugu is the first southeast state to be a beneficiary of the support. He urged Enugu’s government to make good use of the facility, while ensuring safe delivery of the immunisation drugs from the cold chain to distribution points and then to children.
