Briefing on the launch of the nationwide Measles Vaccination Campaign for Children

Why this is interesting:
During the war, the risk of measles infection increases due to mass gathering of people, for example in bomb shelters. Thus, 9 out of 10 unvaccinated people become infected after contact with a sick person.

On July 17, the nationwide “Measles Catch-up Vaccination Campaign” will start in Ukraine. More than 300,000 doses of the European MMR vaccine have already been delivered to Ukraine and distributed to the regions of the country.

As part of the campaign, before the start of the new school year, doctors and mobile teams plan to vaccinate, in particular, children who missed their vaccination due to the war.
