Samoan warning of renal failure if children not vaccinated

According to Newsline Samoa, the President of the National Kidney Foundation of Samoa gave the warning while speaking of young people already getting dialysis treatment.

Papalii Dr Sam Petaia said a child under the age of 5 years and a 10 year old are among adult patients receiving dialysis and this is causing concern to the medical profession.

He said with the Pacific Games coming up in July, it is crucial that parents ensure children are immunised.
