Kingdom to launch first measles campaign

The Ministry of Health will launch the Kingdom’s first campaign against measles next week, said Sok Sokun, director of the Phnom Penh Municipal Department of Health yesterday. The campaign aims to target children between the ages of nine months to 5 years of age and will provide vaccines for residents in half of the Kingdom’s provinces. “After the first campaign is carried out, health officials plan on a second immunisation campaign against measles so that we would be able to cover all the Kingdom’s provinces,” Sok Sokhun said.
