The three-day training aims to equip participants with the necessary tools to administer the new polio vaccine, to be launched on the 28th November.

Topics on techniques, routine vaccination strategies, their conditioning, planning and distribution, are part of the seminar.

At the time, the provincial director of health in Cunene, Mendes Esteves, warned technicians of the Expanded Immunization Program (PAV) to engage more in the learning of the contents to be given, in order to meet the challenges of the national vaccination plan.

The vaccination of injectable poliomyelitis, according to the official, will be administered together with the oral, being framed in the reinforcement of the preventive strategies of the disease by the Regional Committee of Africa.
