Innovative Malaria Vaccine Offers Travelers Much Needed Protection

In Travel Vaccine News by Travel Vaccine

In early October 2021, the World Health Organization (WHO) endorsed the first-ever vaccine against malaria, a parasitic disease transmitted by the bite of an infective female Anopheles mosquito.
This achievement is the product of 30 years of research and development. 
It is the first against malaria, and the first for any human parasitic disease stated an article recently published by Johns Hopkins Malaria Research Institute.
This WHO endorsement was important since malaria is a significant cause of illness and death in sub-Saharan Africa.
