UNICEF, the Abkhaz authorities and the European Union have left no stone unturned in their efforts to keep the region polio-free. In the first round of the polio immunization campaign that began here in November, 98 percent of all children up to 17 years of age were vaccinated. Hundreds of vaccination points were set up in medical facilities, schools and kindergartens across Abkhazia, and more than 50 mobile units were deployed to reach every child in the most remote rural areas. The second round of immunization is scheduled for 6-12 December. Available assets include narrated packages and photos.
