Infants can be protected by polio drops: Zafar



The Post Graduate Medical Institute & Ameer Uddin Medical College Principal Prof. Dr. Muhammad Al-Fareed Zafar has said that knocking on the doors by polio workers during the national anti-polio campaign is a voice of protection to the children from disability. Therefore, parents should fully cooperate with the teams of polio for ensuring healthy future to their new generation and a better future of the nation. He further said that by ensuring 100 % polio coverage, Pakistan can be made a polio-free country.

These views were expressed by Prof. Al-Fareed Zafar while talking to the patients and their families while administering polio drops to children in Lahore General Hospital here, today. Professors and other senior doctors were also present on this occasion. MS General Hospital Dr. Khalid. Bin Aslam while giving a briefing to Prof. Al-Fareed Zafar said that a mobile team has been setup while 7 counters have also been placed for public convenience in the hospital which will facilitate general public regarding polio drops that will come to the LGH with their parents from 8 am to 4 pm every day.

This national campaign will remain functional till January 22, he further added.
