“…The government will use reduced doses of the vaccine, of which there’s currently a shortfall, to immunize those at risk, [DRC Health Minister] Felix Kabange Numbi told reporters Monday in the capital, Kinshasa. The program could begin by July 20, with the reduced doses providing protection from the mosquito-borne illness for at least 12 months, he said” (Wilson, 6/28).
