The vaccination campaign against Ebola postponed in Guinea

Guinean health authorities have postponed an Ebola vaccination roll out that was to begin on Monday due to bad weather.

On Facebook, Guinea’s health ministry said that they planned to fly the supplies from Dakar on Monday and start the vaccination roll out one day late on Tuesday.

It is unclear whether is was possible for the Monday flight to take place.
