KABUL (AFP) – Afghanistan will kick off its first countrywide polio immunization campaign in years next month to protect millions of unvaccinated children, the UN said Monday. The United Nations’ health and children’s agencies said the campaign to vaccinate against the crippling and potentially fatal disease would begin on November 8, with full support from the Taliban leadership. “WHO and UNICEF welcome the decision by the Taliban leadership supporting the resumption of house-to-house polio vaccination across Afghanistan,” they said in a statement.
