East Siang joined in nationwide campaign against polio virus by launching the Intensified Pulse Polio Immunization (IPPI) drive across the district on Sunday. According to DMO Dr. Kaling Dai out of 6999 targeted children, 5854 children were immunized today in the district and two-days house survey cum immunization would be carried for left out children.

Speaking on the occasion, DC Singh asked for ensuring 100% vaccine coverage of targeted children under IPPI deploying adequate men, materials and equipment to administer polio drops to children below 5 years at the doorstep of citizens in the district. She instructed the DMO to constantly monitor the performance and underscoring the importance of entrusted paramedical staffs in such programs, she said that their active participation and coordinated efforts could dramatically improve the immunization percentage. The DC while urging the citizens to extend their help and cooperation in the process has stated this war against crippling disease like polio was not just the responsibility of the medical department but ours as well.
