Mass polio vaccination in Indonesia
The Government in Indonesia have kicked off a massive campaign to vaccinate 6.4 million children against polio in just two days.

The latest cases of the crippling disease which is spread by contaminated water, is incurable and causes paralysis and sometimes death have been in the Bogor and Lebak regions of West Java.

The country is suffering its first outbreak of the disease for nearly a decade, with 16 cases reported so far.

The announcement came after Vice-president Jusuf Kalla's wife, Mufidah Kalla, squeezed droplets of vaccine into a young boy's mouth to symbolise the start of the immunisation drive that will occur in the capital, Jakarta, neighbouring West Java and Banten on Tuesday.

“It will be carried out in all hospitals, public health centres, airports, seaports, railway and bus stations as well as other public places," Yusharmen said.

"We hope we can finish it in one day”.
