"These vaccines have been proven to be the cause of the actual disease they were met to prevent. Is it that nobody is listening to all pastor Chris has been saying concerning these lies called vaccines. A lot of testimonials."


"My darling Sister, your baby only needs breast milk and a health diet to develop properly.....not vaccines, please critically consider the fact that with thousands of vaccines babies have to take, we still have strange illnesses plaguing them."


"This is one thing we are fortunate to have here in the north, after the completion of the vaccine a certificate and small money will be given to the baby sef…I remember facing this vaccine issue in Edo state."


"Even when they finally got MMR and Chicken pox, the prices they called for each dose wasn't even funny. Because they said federal government is not supplying it so they buy it too.."
