Every Child Needs to Be Vaccinated to Lead India into a Polio Free Future - Ramadoss

s (ASHA) are effectively involved for polio eradication. Social mobilisation initiatives have been expanded and intensified to reach out to all sections of the society, specially the marginalized. These measures together have improved the quality of immunization rounds.

In order to boost the immunity in children before the onset of high transmission season the May immunization round was extended to vulnerable states where the immunity level is comparatively low, like Andhra Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Orissa, Assam, Rajasthan, Gujarat, Punjab and Haryana.

The Minister asked the States to be cautiously optimistic as the risks and challenges remain of type 1 poliovirus spreading to other states. To further improve the quality of SIAs, the Minister asked the States to improve health infrastructure, fill the vacancies of Medical officers, Auxiliary Nurse Midwives (ANMs) and ASHAs.

The Minister asked the Health Ministers of UP and Bihar to strengthen political oversight and engagement to further improve and sustain the quality of the immunization rounds. He said regular interactions with district magistrates and health staff would be very productive to ensure the best quality programme.

As per the recommendation of the Indian Expert Advisory Group (IEAG) immunization rounds would be held in the high-risk areas in June, August and September followed by two rounds later in the year with monovalent vaccines.

Our job now is to contain the disease from spreading further and to safeguard the significant progress made over the last few months said Dr. Ramadoss. We can do that with the strategy we have in place. The Ministers today gave their pledge to ensure that no children are left unimmunized in the crucial next few polio campaigns and ensure achieving zero polio transmission by 2008.
