Nagaland has joined the rest of the country in administering the polio drops to children below five years of age on National Immunisation Day today. 

Deputy Commissioner Kohima Thejawelie Gregory launched the programme in the state by administering polio drops to a three-year girl child at Naga Hospital Authority Kohima. 

State Department of Health and Family Welfare has set a target of reaching 2,77,283 children in 2,274 polio booths manned by 9,096 health personnel along with other vaccines and logistics across the state.

Special focus is also given to the migrant population to prevent the importation of Polio cases. Healthcare personnel and volunteers would be conducting house to house visit in the next two days for eligible children who have missed their doses today. 

Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio in a tweet urged all parents who have children below 5 years to ensure that their children receive Polio Drops.

State Immunization Officer, Department of Health & Family Welfare, Nagaland, Dr. Ritu Thurr said the department is reaching out to the migrant population living in urban towns of Dimapur and Kohima.

Dr. Thurr said mobile teams are also deputed at railway stations, bus terminals and in high-risk locations like construction sites.
