“South Sudan is expected to start Ebola vaccinations with the health ministry concerned about the current outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

A statement from the World Health Organization indicates that the health ministry will begin vaccinating some health workers and other frontline workers in the capital, Juba, on Dec. 19.

No Ebola cases have been reported in South Sudan or any of Congo’s neighbors in this outbreak, which is now the second-deadliest in history.

The move to vaccinate comes after Uganda began vaccinations for health workers near the border with the DRC.

More than 40,000 people have received the experimental but promising Ebola vaccine in this outbreak.

The WHO statement says more than 2,000 doses have been allocated to South Sudan.

Congo’s health ministry says this outbreak has almost reached 500 cases: 494, including 446 confirmed with 235 confirmed deaths.”
