Children to receive malaria vaccination across Africa
The World Health Organization (WHO) says the RTS,S malaria vaccine should be rolled out across sub-Saharan Africa following successful trials in children. WHO says it is a “historic moment” that could save “tens of thousands of young lives each year.” In 2019, more than 260,000 children died of malaria in Africa. Trials show the vaccine is safe and reduces severe malaria by 30%.
