MSF/Sophia Apostolia
In June and July 2016 MSF has been conducting vaccination campaigns in several refugee camps and settlements in Greece, targeting more than 4,600 children under fifteen years of age. This campaign aims at protecting refugee children with 10 antigens and preventing diseases such as pneumonia, which is the leading cause of childhood death. MSF calls on Pfizer and GSK to drop the price of the pneumonia vaccine (PCV) for governments and humanitarian organizations in emergency contexts.
