News 24 With the slogan "stopping measles". The Ministry of Health announces the launch of the national measles vaccination campaign

expressiveThe Ministry of Health on Wednesday launched the national campaign to vaccinate children against measles and red dogs lasting two months and targeting children aged 6 months and 5 years to give them booster doses.

The Ministry confirmed that it provided the measles and rubella vaccine free to all citizens and residents of all its health centers and that it started this week to provide service to the auditors.

The Ministry of Health urged citizens and residents to ensure that their children receive the supplemental vaccine indicating that the virus is living in the nose and throat and transmitted by cough spray, and that if the cough syringe falls on the surfaces, the virus remains active and infectious for two hours.

The Ministry added that the infection of the measles virus affects the respiratory system, and when it does, there are rashes throughout the body beyond the swelling of the lymph nodes and can lead to serious complications, indicating that the symptom period varies from 3 to 5 days.
