Yien said eight cattle camps benefited from the 25-day vaccination campaign. Some of them he mentioned include; Aleideir, Chuai, Pakot, and Pulrul.”

However, he stressed that some cattle camps were not reached due to inadequacy of the vaccines.

“They did not complete due to an increase number of cattle which was beyond 40, 000,”

But he said, the vaccination team has promised to continue from where they have left.
