Whether your child has previously received the measles vaccine, they should get the jab again this time round. The vaccine targets children aged 9 months to 5 years while the Vitamin A targets those between 6 months to 5 years and will be administered for free at all public health facilities. In Dadaab, the vaccine will be administered to children 9 months to 15 years as well as polio.
