HA NOI (VNS) — The capital city will provide a free vaccine combining measles and rubella to around 1.6 million of children, aged one to 14 years, in a campaign that begins this October.

During the campaign, children aged under five years will receive the vaccine at commune and ward health clinics while those aged six to 14 years will receive the vaccine at primary and secondary schools.

The City's Preventive Medicine Centre plans to safely provide the vaccine to at least 95 per cent of targeted children. — VNS
