Polio Vaccination Campaign – volunteers needed

Join other LBW members for  Africare’s next  Polio Vaccination Campaign scheduled for the 14th, 15th and 16th of August 2015. To participate,  contact Mavinga at mvangadio@africare.org by next Monday, the 10th of August to confirm the day you are available and to get more details.

LBW member Jan went last year and tells us “We met at the Africare office  in town around 7.30am where they gave us the polio t-shirt and cap. We then went in our cars to a medical centre car park to collect the polio vaccines and receive instructions, then travelled to the area the program was covering. You work in pairs, one gives the vaccine (a couple of oral drops) whilst the other marks the child’s finger nail with a special marker pen to show they have been vaccinated and records the number of children.  We were finished around lunchtime.”
