Kenyans have been called upon to ensure that their children aged Five years and below get the vaccination for them to make a healthy generation in future.
This polio must be very serious. Every type has its own vaccine. Wont be surprised if another campaign for vaccine type 5 is launched in 3 weeks. #VaccinesWork
