In an exclusive interview with Ghana News Desk,  Ketu South Municipal Director of Health Service Joseph Kwami Degley said "Very soon we will be doing mass distributing of mosquito nets for malaria prevention. I wants to use this opportunity to urge all caregivers and parents to come out in their numbers to take the nets so we can fight malaria". 

"I will urge all parents to take their children to malaria vaccination centers. It will help us to fight the malaria menace in the country" Mr Degley said. 

Meanwhile, Ketu South Municipal Director of Health Service Joseph Kwami Degley has also urged caregivers to have confidence in the efficacy of vaccines because it remains the appropriate option to combat malaria. 

He told Ghana News Desk's Jerry Akornor that "I want to tell caregivers that vaccines work. An example is polio vaccinations, now we don't have new cripples except old ones because of the polio vaccinations".
