What is that Polio Picture? Indonesia – cVDPV2

One case of circulating vaccine-derived poliovirus type 2 (cVDPV2) was reported this week, with onset of paralysis on 9 October, from Aceh province.  It is the first case reported from the country.  Genetically-linked virus was also isolated from three healthy community contacts.

A risk assessment and field investigation is currently ongoing by local and National public health authorities, and supported by partners of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, including to assess more clearly the origin of the isolated viruses.  The Ministry of Health has publicly announced the outbreak, and catch-up immunization campaigns were launched in the immediately-affected area on 28 November, targeting 1.2 million children under the age of 13 years.

Based on a detailed risk assessment, two large-scale vaccination campaigns are planned, one each in January and February 2023, covering four provinces (Aceh, North Sumatera, Riau and West Sumatera), targeting 3.7 million children.
