POLIO: Almost 2Million Children Vaccinated In Angola – WHO


In line with recent numbers released by the World Health Organisation [WHO], over 1.9 million children in Angola were vaccinated last week against the deadly poliovirus noting that Angola was one of 14 African countries facing outbreaks of a rare circulating vaccine-derived poliovirus.

Vaccination campaigns, involving 13,340 people, across five of Angola’s 18 provinces were launched earlier this week under strict COVID-19 prevention measures.

The campaign was initially targeting just over 1.2 million children under five years of age.
