The vaccination drive is targeted at countering the upsurge of the two trans-boundary diseases which are putting livestock at high risk due to increased movement of animals within the county and across the border with Tanzania.

The vaccination initiative is a project of the County Government of Narok in partnership with Regional Pastoral Livelihoods Resilience Project (RPLRP-Kenya).
