"This morning, at 6:00 a.m. we loaded 4,000 cholera vaccines into pick-up trucks and dispatched the vaccines with 40 teams of 4 people each to towns and villages across the region," said Jon Lascher, PIH's Haiti Program Manager, speaking from Haiti's Artibonite Valley region on Sunday, April 15. "Most teams worked faster than anticipated, and within 2 hours of starting we ran out of vaccine at the posts."

"We mobilized more supply from the cold storage and by 4:00 p.m. we had vaccinated 6,100 people. There was little waste and we were able to register many new people. Tomorrow we'll start with 6,000 vaccines and monitor our pace through the day," continued Jon.
