Children to join school for vaccination
MULTAN, June 28: Summer vacation will be suspended for four days in all public and private schools of the district to vaccinate children against measles during a 10-day special campaign likely to begin from July 15.
“About 1,192,000 children aged six months to 10 years will be vaccinated against measles throughout the district,” Executive District Officer (EDO) for Health Dr Iftikhar Qureshi said here on Thursday.
He said six of the 10 days would be allocated for area to area campaign and four days for both private and public schools of the district.
He said the Punjab government itself purchased the anti-measles vaccine to fight the epidemic. He said the children who had already been vaccinated would be given a booster.
More than 14,000 children have been affected by the disease in recent months and are under treatment at government hospitals across Punjab. — APP.
