2nd Day of Polio Vaccination at South District
Namchi, 1st February: The Second day of Polio National Immunization Day 2021 saw health, ASHAs & Anganwadi workers conduct door to door survey so as to leave no child unvaccinated during the programme.
A total of 24940 households were surveyed and 221 left out children(0 to 5 years) under South District were vaccinated today.
PUBLIC APPEAL :
– NO CHILD (0-5 yrs) SHOULD MISS “TWO DROPS OF POLIO “
– All sections of people and stakeholders to cooperate for the successful implementation of the programme. Though India has been POLIO FREE but the rising number of polio cases in our neighbouring countries possesses a serious threat of Polio Virus Importation.
– Any refusal to the polio vaccine should be discouraged.
– Polio Vaccination Programme will be continued until Global Polio Eradication is achieved.
