HIMACHAL LAUNCHES MEASLES-RUBELLA VACCINATION CAMPAIGN


Seeking to eliminate measles and rubella in Himachal Pradesh, the state government has launched a vaccination campaign against the viral diseases, which cause deaths of thousands of children in India annually.

The vaccination programme, which will cover 18.67 lakh children between nine months and 15 years age group, was launched by Himachal Pradesh Health Minister Kaul Singh Thakur. The vaccine of measles-rubella (MR) would be provided in 18,200 schools, anganwadi and health centres across the state.

Thus our school too enjoyed the benefit of this campaign and the children under the age of 15 were vaccinated timely.
