November 2022: Cameroon 3rd round of polio vaccinations

Cameroon ran a polio vaccination campaign November 4-6, targeting over 1 million children under age 5 across 42 health districts affected by the outbreak in the East, Far North, Littoral and West regions. Health workers administered the novel oral polio vaccine (nOPV2) door to door and in health facilities, schools and other public places. The campaign also allowed children under age 2 who missed a dose of the polio vaccine to catch up. This is the third round of polio vaccinations this year as the country aims to combat poliovirus type 2, which was detected in 2021. Xinhua; CRTV
