New pneumonia vaccine hits Africa

A new vaccine against pneumonia is being rolled out in Africa which estimates suggest could save more than half a million lives a year globally.

The Gavi Alliance, a global health partnership of public and private sectors for immunisation, says 19 countries will get the jab at first.

Kenyan children have begun receiving it and Sierra Leone, Yemen, Honduras and Guyana will follow this year.
