Compulsory Immunization Against Meningitis For Prospective Corp Members (PCMs) - NYSC

Don't be deceived, This is a new cunning and dubious way some greedy and selfish NYSC whatsapp admins now use to lure innocent PCMs to patronize them for medical fitness certificate. 

If you already have a medical fitness certificate issued by a certified government hospital and it doesn't have the Meningitis vaccination or immunization stated on it do not panic because it's not a problem, your medical fitness will still be accepted in camp. 

Don't go and throw away a valid Medical fitness certificate you have gotten any where whether online or in the government hospital with your hard earned money because it doesn't have Meningitis vaccination, then patronize those greedy random whatsapp admins who make posts that the vaccination should compulsorily be on your medical fitness because you want the meningitis vaccination in your medicals, i can assure you it's not as mandatory as they exaggerate. 

The immunization against Meningitis notification is a necessity for all PCMs which has always popped up on PCMs dashboard for a very long time. The reason you are advised to be immunized against meningitis is because as a corper in camp you will always be standing very close to each other and under the sun for long periods of time, hence you ought to be immunized against Meningitis. 

Meningitis is an inflammation of the meninges (the protective membrane that covers the brain and spinal cord.) It can be caused by any of the things that can cause inflammation and infection and there is a myth that Getting too much sun on your neck will get you a sunburned neck which increases it's chances. 

Also Most bacteria that cause meningitis such as meningococcus, pneumococcus and Haemophilus influenzae are carried in the human nose and throat. They spread from person to person by respiratory droplets or throat secretions. With that you can see it's easy to get it when standing close to one another if you aren't immunized. 

With respect to the above NYSC has not and has never made it mandatory that it must be in your medical fitness certificate so like i said earlier do not be deceived to spend your money twice because of the Meningitis immunization. 

Regardless, try every possible means to be immunized which is for your own health safety,, If the proof of vaccination is on your medicals then fine.. If it's not on your Medicals it's still fine. No official is going to chase you out of camp after traveling to sokoto because there is no Meningitis vaccination in your medicals. 

Over the years most government hospitals even issue medical fitness certificate without writing a single test carried out on it, they just put the statement that their patient has been examined and found fit. Be very wary of some selfish and greedy whatsapp admins who no nothing about NYSC.
