The national Meningitis A Vaccination, Vitamin A Supplementation, and Deworming Campaign is on! The campaign was officially launched on Friday in the West Coast Region by the First Lady Fatoumatta Bah-Barrow, and will run until 8th February 2019, in all regions of The Gambia.
The #Gambia remains at the forefront in the region and globally for maintaining high immunization coverage and the introduction of new vaccines. We must celebrate this!
UNICEF & WHO continue to play a leading role at global & national level, in supporting & working w/ national governments, CSOs & communities to ensure that every child is immunized against leading vaccine preventable diseases. We continue to support the Expanded Programme of Immunization under the Ministry of Health in achieving its mandate.
As the campaign continues, we call on all parents and caregivers to fulfill their responsibilities and ensure that their children are vaccinated and protected.
