Vaccines could save 2.5m

The health department has introduced two new vaccines which could prevent 2.5 million child deaths a year.

The vaccines were introduced in Pretoria on Thursday. The two vaccines, rotavirus and pentavalent, will reduce the number of child mortalities by 2.5 million per year," said Dr Ntombenhle Ngcobo, a specialist on the department's expanded programme on immunisation.
