Bangladesh is staging the largest measles–rubella vaccination campaign the country has ever seen.
TANGAIL DISTRICT, Bangladesh, 18 February 2014 – Sajib is 13 years old. He is in Grade 7 at Buruha high school, in Tangail district, Bangladesh. A couple weeks ago, as he cycled past the Charpara immunization centre, he saw the banner and stopped. He’d missed his measles–rubella vaccine, when it was administered at school.
After he’d had his vaccine, Sajib went home to send his younger brothers and sister to be vaccinated.
