14.5 million children protected from measles as Ethiopia’s vaccination campaign moved forward safely during COVID-19.

CDC helped provide:

  • 6,320 more health workers
  • Training for health workers and campaign staff
  • Masks and hand sanitizer
  • Extra days for the vaccination campaign

To increase services, reduce crowding, and provide space to physically distance.

The threat of diseases like measles didn’t stop when COVID-19 appeared.

CDC supports safely restarting vaccination activities to #StoptheSpots.
