The first malaria vaccine administered to children in Cameroon

The first malaria vaccine has been administered to children in Cameroon.

Cameroon has become the first country in the world to initiate a specific program for the malaria vaccine.

It is predicted that this action will save thousands of children from death across Africa.

After successful trials in Kenya, Ghana, and Malawi, today the first vaccine was administered to a girl named Daniela in Cameroon.

The World Health Organization described this event as a historic moment in the fight against this disease, with the approval of the vaccine produced by British pharmaceutical company GSK.

According to the announcement by the World Vaccine Union, twenty other countries have decided to initiate this vaccination program in the current calendar year.

Research and production of this vaccine took thirty years.
