The government of the Philippines, WHO and the U.N. Children’s Fund joined with other partners to vaccinate children against polio and measles. The vaccination drive, which is targeting children under the age of five in all the typhoon-affected areas, will also provide vitamin A supplements and screen children for malnutrition.
