2nd Ebola vaccine
introduced in
DR Congo

Authorities in the Democratic Republic of Congo yesterday introduced a second vaccine to fight the deadly Ebola virus in the east of the country, the Doctors Without Borders (MSF) charity said. It said the new vaccine, produced by a Belgian subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, is aimed at protecting about 50,000 people over a period of four months. More than 250,000 people in the region have already been received doses of another anti-Ebola vaccine since last year.
