A Step Towards Immunization
08 Apr 2019
Madurai District Health Department successfully immunized 2.89 lakh children. Initially the main aim was providing the polio service for 2.85 lakh children but it turned out as a great success as they reached up to immunize more than their basic aim. On the National Polio Day this program was held and they administered polio drops as part of it. This program went hand in hand with great public help and support where polio vaccine was administered to the children door to door. It was carried out in a systematic manner where the statistics and data was maintained which helped in the better execution of the program. Furthermore, there are no instances of polio in this region from last 14 years and that itself is an achievement.
