The vaccination campaign against measles and rubella kicked off in Government Bilingual Nursery and Primary School New-Bell Aviation Ngangue in the presence of the Governor of the Littoral Region, Samuel Dieudonné Ivaha Diboua. The vaccination campaign that targets some 1,260,000 children in the region between the ages of nine months and 14 years will be carried out from door to door by the numerous vaccination agents in 6 days.
 
During the launching ceremony at the school, Ivaha Diboua said government and its partners have made the vaccination free of charge and everybody should contribute to the success since it is to preserve the lives of future Cameroonians. "Churches, mosques, schools, quarter heads, traditional rulers, and villages should embrace the vaccination teams because the drastic consequences can be prevented only through vaccination. The diseases hinder the development of the country thus all and sundry should be involved in its prevention and secure the lives of future Cameroonians," he pleaded.
