Shortage of vaccine

Hundreds of lives have been lost in Malawi because of the outbreak of Cholera. However this could have been prevented if the residents received their vaccine on time and in the right dosage. But due to shortage of vaccines the people were receiving 1 dose to last a couple of months whereas they should receive 2 doses to last around two years. The incident manager Patrick Ramathan instructed that if you do not have the disease you do not need a vaccine which should not be the case. Everyone should be protected sick or not and maybe we might save some lives.
