PULSE POLIO IMMUNIZATION

Two drops of OPV are given to all children below the age of 5, on a single day, as set by the Government of India. This is over and above the routine immunization. This strategy is critical for eradicating the virus from India. It is also known as Mass Immunization and the days on which they conducted are called National Immunization days.

Mass immunization on a gigantic scale was responsible for global eradication of Small Pox. Pulse Polio Programme ensures that ALL children in community have the protection against Polio. 1 or 2 extra doses will always be beneficial and will never harm your child.
