WAU, 23 March 2018 [Gurtong] - According to the State Primary Health Care Director, Hennery Gabriel Sasa, the vaccinations targeted everyone from 1 year and above.

He said the campaign was run by the UN humanitarian agencies including WHO, IOM and UNICEF.

“We conducted a cholera vaccination campaign for three days which begun from the 20th up to 22nd of this month and the campaign was done in coordination with UN agencies, UNICEF, WHO, IOM and the State Ministry of Health,” said Sasa.

Sasa said the aim of picking the protection of civilian sites was due to the fact that the area has been reported to be unhygienic and the aim is to stop any outbreak of cholera.
