Pulse Polio: 3.57 lakh children to be immunised in Prakasam
Just two drops of polio vaccine can make all the difference, says Prakasam Joint Collector Hari Jawaharlal.
Flagging of an awareness rally here on Saturday to ensure polio-free India, he urged officials of health and other departments involved in the campaign to ensure 100 per cent coverage of the targeted children in the age group of below five years on the first day itself.
Doctors, health workers, nursing students, employees from the Integrated Child Development Scheme(ICDS) and others took part in the rally to impress upon parents to take their children to the 2,499 booths being set up for the purpose on Sunday.
District Medical and Health Officer J. Yasmin said: â€œWe are fully geared up to undertake the gigantic task of immunising 3.57 lakh children in the district by making available 4.5 lakh doses to the designated schools and public health centres.
We have to be cautious as there is lurking danger of polio virus entering the nation from neighbouring countries, said Dr. K. Sudhakar Babu Regional director, Family Welfare from Visakhapatnam who had come to oversee conduct of the pulse polio programme.
As many as 59 transit booths were being set up in railway stations and bus stations to reach out to children on the move along with their parents during Sankaranti festival, he said.
Dr. Yasmin said that 88 mobile teams would visit remotest parts of the district to cover about 9,000 children of those working in construction sites, brick kilns, fishermen and nomads. As many as 38 booths were being organised in remote tribal hamlets in the Nallamalla forests, she added.
Nellore Staff Reporter adds: The pulse polio programme will be held in Nellore district from January 17 to 19 for three days with the objective of administering the drops to nearly 3.29 lakh children in the age-group of 0 to 5 years.
Giving details of the programme, Joint Collector A. Md. Imtiaz on Saturday said there used to be polio cases before 1995 but the problem had come down following massive pulse polio programmes being taken up periodically. Elaborate arrangements have been made at all the venues for administering polio drops, he added.
