A research team led by a Kenyan scientist has produced the first Rift Valley Fever (RVF) vaccine that can be used by both humans and animals. In a study published this week in Scientific Reports, an online journal, the researchers demonstrated that a single injection with this vaccine is safe and offers complete protection against RVF in livestock and recommends that the vaccine be tried in humans.
