Millions of Tanzanian children protected against measles
Nearly 6.5 million children vaccinated
This child is one of nearly 6.5 million children who were vaccinated against measles during the three-day campaign.
It is a challenge to vaccinate so many children over such a short time frame. Enormous efforts were made during the preparatory stage to procure vaccines and to ensure that vaccines and injection equipment arrived at every health centre and vaccination post in the country in time for the start of the campaign.
