When Will The Polio Vaccine Be Available? How Much Sensitisation Is Being Done On This?

107

QUESTION OF THE DAY

The Minister of Health has declared Poliovirus Type 2 a National Public Health Emergency on 18th August, 2021. He said his Ministry is planning for two massive vaccination exercises for children between the age of 0-5 years. Foroyaa will find out from the authorities how soon this will commence.

Furthermore some people that Foroyaa spoke cannot distinguish between this vaccination and the Covid-19 vaccination. There is need for sensitisation.
