The vaccination campaign against typhoid is being launched in Madhes Province from April 8. The government is implementing the campaign from April 8 to May 1 in order to minimize the human loss caused by typhoid, according to Province Health Directorate.

Information about this was shared at a news conference organized by the Health Directorate in Janakpurdham on Monday. The children aged between 15 months to 15 years will be vaccinated under the drive. Director Bijay Kumar Jha said the anti-typhoid vaccine would however be administered together with regular immunization.

Efforts were on to ensure vaccine to at least 95 per cent of the target group. There are 1.7 million populations in the beneficiary age group in eight districts of Madhes Province. Along with this, the children would be immunized against measles and rubella.

According to the Madhes Province representative for the WHO office, Suresh Shukla, Nepal will be the first country to get the vaccine against typhoid in East Asian countries.
