Ebola vaccinations for DRC

DRC health ministry preps for possible Ebola vaccinations

Democratic Republic of Congo's health ministry is preparing to begin Ebola vaccinations on Wednesday in the eastern city of Beni and neighbouring Mangina village where the outbreak was announced last week, the ministry said.

The vaccination campaign will target health care providers, contacts of confirmed Ebola cases and their contacts, said Barthe Ndjoloko Tambwe, director of the Ebola response in Beni. The strategy is the same that was used to contain the previous outbreak in DRC's Equateur province in which more than 3 300 people were vaccinated.
