On his part, Dr. Abdul Rahman from Modern Care Clinic advised the beneficiaries to take their health seriously.

“Let’s take hepatitis seriously. I encourage you all to get checked. If you have not been vaccinated, please go to any hospital and get yourself vaccinated,” Dr. Abdul Rahman admonished.
