December 2022: Kenya conducts measles vaccination effort

Kenya ran a vaccination campaign against measles and rubella December 9-18, targeting 1.2 million children ages 9 months to 59 months in six high-risk counties: Garissa, Mandera, Marsabit, Nairobi, Turkana and West Pokot (including two West Pokot refugee camps). Launched in response to confirmed countrywide outbreaks caused by low immunization rates and frequent migration, the campaign used both fixed and temporary vaccination centers.
