February 2022: Tigray region concludes 2nd phase of integrated measles campaign

In Ethiopia’s Tigray region, the second phase of an integrated measles vaccination campaign concluded on February 7, reaching 595,000 children under age 5, including refugees in Mai-Tsebri in the North Western zone. Vitamin A supplementation and deworming medicines were also co-delivered in 67 rural and two urban woredas. In some areas, health workers reportedly walked up to 21 miles to administer vaccines, with families providing accommodation and food for them as they could not travel in and out of the villages during the week of the campaign due to lack of fuel.
