Uganda to Vaccinate 2.5 Million for Yellow Fever, Vision Says

Uganda plans to vaccinate 2.5 million people against yellow fever after the disease killed 45 people in the country’s northern region in the past two months, New Vision reported, citing a ministry of health official.

The vaccine is expected next month, the Kampala-based newspaper said, citing Kenya Mugisha, the ministry’s director general for health services. The World Health Organization and U.S. Center for Disease Control are helping to bring in the vaccine, New Vision said.
