Demand for measles vaccine spikes

Update: March, 04/2014 - 08:05

HA NOI (VNS)— Around 6,000 children under the age of two will receive the measles vaccine for the first time, as part of an eight day programme that kicked off yesterday in Ha Noi.

Director of the Ha Noi Precautionary Health Centre, Nguyen Nhat Cam, estimated demand for the vaccine would increase 20 per cent due to the programme.

However, Cam said he was confident in the 80,000 strong supply of vaccines the city had stockpiled for disease.

Centres across the city will also increase their working hours to provide the vaccine to more children. — VNS
