WHO Announces 2nd Malaria Vaccine Recommendation

Summary by Ground News
Called R21/Matrix-M, the vaccine is given as three doses to children up to the age of 3, followed by a booster one year later. A trial has shown that this immunisation course reduces cases of malaria by 75 per cent if given just before the rainy season. Malaria causes more than half a million deaths a year, mostly in young children in sub-Saharan Africa.
