Post by Guest on Fri Jul 24, 2015 10:26 am

The European Medicines Agency has approved the world's first malaria vaccination - meaning that it could be administered to children across Africa within the next few years. Scientists across Africa are celebrating the news that the world's first vaccination against malaria has been approved by the European Medicines Agency. The vaccination, named Mosquirix, was given the green light on Friday after more than 30 years of research, detailed in 230,000 pages of data. It now means that the vaccination will be examined by the World Health Organisation and, if approved, could be administered to children across Africa within the next few years.
