WHO Changes DR Congo Ebola Vaccination Strategy

The World Health Organization's panel of experts say that a wider group of contacts will now be vaccinated and it is going to reduce dosages to allow for this due to concerns over a potential vaccine shortage, if the outbreak expands.

The Government of Democratic Republic of the Congo, with the support of WHO and partners, carried out a vaccination campaign in high-risk populations against Ebola virus disease in affected health zones.
