Immunization

CDC has deployed 36 public health professionals to work in Sierra Leone on immunization activities through the Stop the Transmission of Polio program since the program began in 1999. 25 of those have been field assignments. The others: 2 for communications, 6 for data management, and 3 for measles and rubella.
