Every child aged 6 months to 15 years is targeted

The Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Community Development Mother and Child with support from UNICEF, the World Health Organization (WHO), and other partners are conducting the National Measles Campaign from 10-15 September 2012.

Children aged 6 months to 15 years will be vaccinated against measles during the campaign. Children aged 6-59 months will also receive vitamin A supplementation and deworming tablets.

Please make sure that you take all your children under 15 years to the nearest health centre for measles vaccination.

Please also share this message with your neighbours, friends and families. Let us do what we can to ensure that no child is missed from measles vaccination.
