Eritrea to Commence Nationwide Anti-Polio Vaccination Program

In Eritrea, the Ministry of Health has launched a nationwide anti-polio program in all sub-zones of the country.

Tedros Yihdego, head of the National Vaccination Program at the Ministry of Health, says the objective of the program is to contain the spread of the cross-border poliovirus epidemic that has been detected in neighboring countries.

Tedros went on to say that 656 vaccination units, as well as 1968 health professionals, have been mobilized to successfully conduct the program.

Pointing out that children born after February 2016 are eligible to take the vaccination and children aged from 6 months to 5 years will be provided with Vitamin ‘A’, Tedros called on parents to take their children to vaccination centers.
