Dr Theodore Mwabi, respected veterinarian and project volunteer consultant, shared his extensive expertise during a well-attended session for training local vaccinators and supervisors in mid-August. This was followed by the first vaccine campaign in 10 villages around Mbuji-Maji. The good news is that there is much interest in vaccination with many people in outlying villages wanting to know how they can get involved. All households from the 10 targeted villages participated in the campaign. The vaccinators managed to vaccinate 2,900 chickens, with hopes of that number increasing in following campaigns throughout the year. Monitoring follow ups are now happening and discussions about the price that villagers are willing to pay their community vaccinators are ongoing.
