    A yellow fever vaccination caravan was launched on January 15, 2022 in Melfi, Guéra province. It is an initiative of the National Nomadic Health Program of the Ministry of Public Health.

    This vaccination campaign follows the detection of a few positive cases of yellow fever in the department of Garada, health district of Melfi. To prevent the disease from prospering, the Ministry in charge of Health, via its delegation, deemed it useful to have the populations of the district vaccinated. 122,362 people for this operation. Administrative and health authorities took part in the launching ceremony.

    The prefect of the department of Garada has already received his dose. He appreciates the mobilization of the population who take part in the collective efforts to eradicate yellow fever from Chad. 400 people were mobilized to identify, raise awareness and vaccinate every person aged 9 months to 60 years for this campaign.

    For Dr Anigué Iré Diane, provincial health delegate of Guéra, “a vaccinated person is equal to a protected person”. He invites all the inhabitants to get vaccinated.


    It should be noted that children under the age of 9 are not affected by this vaccination campaign against yellow fever.

          Data as reported by: 17:00; 17 July 2022

          Yellow fever Chad

          48 cases
          7 Deaths
          14.6% CFR


          EVENT DESCRIPTION

          Chad has been experiencing a yellow fever (YF) outbreak since a
          case was confirmed in November 2021, although probable cases
          have been recorded since May 2021. Between May 2021 and 30 June
          2022, a total of 48 cases (of which 44 cases (92.0% were reported in
          2021) have been reported, including 24 confirmed and 24 probable
          cases.

          Of the confirmed and probable cases reported, 27 are males (56.3%);
          the median age is 24 years, with a range of 1 to 56 years. These
          cases were mostly reported in the southern and central part of the
          country including Mandoul (10), Moyen Chari (8), Tandjile (3), Guera
          (2), and Logone Oriental (1) regions.

          Five deaths were reported among confirmed cases and two deaths
          among probable cases, accounting for an overall case fatality rate
          (CFR) of 14.6%. The last confirmed case had symptom onset on 26
          January 2022 while the last probable case had symptom onset on 5
          May 2022. Previous YF outbreaks were reported in 2009 and 2012 in
          areas bordering South Sudan.

          PUBLIC HEALTH ACTIONS

          A national coordination unit is coordinating the response. Joint
          investigations have been conducted by Ministry of health and
          other stakeholders.

          A first reactive campaign was conducted between 19 and 30
          January 2022 targeting 1 117 848 persons with a coverage
          of more than 100%. For this first campaign, seven districts
          in Mandoul were included (Goundi, Koumra, Bourna, Badeya,
          Bejondo, Moissala, and Bekourou) as well as one district from
          Guera (Melfi).

          A second reactive campaign is planned starting in July 2022,
          targeting 918 980 in nine districts from four regions including
          Moyen Chari (Koumogou, Korbol, Danamadji, Maro, Sarh,
          and Balimba), Guera (Niergui), Logone Oriental (Larmanaye)
          and Tandjile (Lai). All microplans were validated and training
          modules have been completed and supervisors have been
          trained. Tools have been printed and vaccine deployment in the
          field is on going

          Yellow fever vaccination card verification is currently ongoing
          on entry and exit at the international airport.

          SITUATION INTERPRETATION

          Chad is among the 27 high-risk countries in Africa for YF outbreaks
          and has been experiencing a YF outbreak since November 2021.
          Although the YF routine immunization was introduced in 1997,
          coverage has remained low, well below 50 percent over the years
          according to WHO and UNICEF estimates. In addition, no mass
          preventive vaccination campaign has been conducted in recent years.
          Therefore, there remains a large population to be covered by mass
          vaccination in order to provide herd immunity to the population.
          Surveillance still needs to be further strengthened to ensure that no cases are missed.
