Health Ministry to seek out children not vaccinated for measles


As concerns mount over measles infection in the region, Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Jacqueline Bisasor-McKenzie says the health ministry will be actively seeking out children who are un-vaccinated for the disease so that they can be immunised.

Dr. Bisasor-McKenzie noted that while the majority of the population is immunised against measles, there are pockets of children who are susceptible.

She said specific parishes will be targeted in the drive to improve MMR vaccination coverage.
