No negligence to be tolerated in polio campaign’



Sindh Health Minister Dr Azra Fazal Pechuho inaugurated a polio vaccination campaign on Monday in a high-risk union council in the Sohrab Goth area of Karachi, and around 10 million children are expected to be administered oral polio vaccine during the drive, officials said.

They said that more than 75,000 vaccinators and supervisors will take part in the campaign, and urged parents to get their children vaccinated against polio when the vaccinators knock on their doors.

So far three polio cases have been reported in Pakistan, all from the North Waziristan area of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.
