Phase 1, dose 1 of the project is completed and may be considered a success.
Phase 1, dose 2 will begin on Sunday 13th and run through until May 20-22th. Then we'll double back to vaccinate children.
We will start vaccinating children 9 years old and under starting on May 27th. The timeline for all of this has changed a bit because the national government is running a National Polio Vaccine Campaign in the Artibonite region right now. The vaccines cannot be delivered at the same time, so we've had to adjust our schedule. I am keeping in close contact with government health officials about the timing of all vaccine administration to avoid overlap.
