Over the last two weeks, ICRC staff have vaccinated more than 15,800 children in 23 Lebanese villages and 500 informal Syrian settlements in Akkar, north Lebanon.
ICRC teams travelled from home to home and tent to tent across the Sahel area in Akkar in order to reach as many children under the age of five as possible. The vaccination campaign was coordinated with the Lebanese Red Cross and the Ministry of Public Health.
