Kenya Postpones Large-Scale Pilot of Malaria Vaccine

The postponement of the vaccine trial is due to the upcoming health summit scheduled for August 14 and 15, the head of the National Vaccines and Immunisation Programme, Collins Tabu, has said. The vaccine is the first to show promise in reducing mortality and morbidity of malaria and will complement existing interventions.
