Authorities in the Democratic Republic of Congo are planning to use a second Ebola vaccine to help control an outbreak that has killed more than 2,100 people.
Axar.az reports citing BBC.
In July, former Health Minister Oly Ilunga opposed its use saying it had not been proved effective.
But DR Congo health officials say the vaccine, developed by Johnson & Johnson, is safe.
This outbreak, in the east of DR Congo, is the second largest on record.
The largest was the epidemic that ravaged parts of West Africa from 2014 to 2016, killing more than 11,000 people.
