NBC: Botched Measles Vaccine Leaves 15 Children Dead

At least fifteen children under the age of five have died in a botched measles vaccination campaign in Sudan.
The country’s health ministry has blamed the deaths on human error, and is setting up a commission to determine who is responsible.
According to the government, the same syringe was used for all the children last month and the vaccine was not stored properly.
The vaccination campaign in the town of Kapoeta saw people aged as young as 12 administering the shots. Many other children became ill.
