Nearly 29 thousand children and five thousand pregnant women were vaccinated on the first day of Intensified Mission Indradhanush 3.0 yesterday. Its first phase has been rolled out from yesterday for fifteen days. The campaign is being conducted in pre-identified 250 districts and urban areas across 29 States and Union Territories in the country.
Intensified Mission Indradhanush 3.0 is a campaign aimed to reach those children and pregnant women who have been missed out or been left out of the Routine Immunisation Programme. This is aimed to accelerate the full immunization of children and pregnant women through a mission mode intervention.
As per Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, adherence to COVID Appropriate Behaviour during the immunization activities has been strongly emphasized. States have been asked to follow ‘Staggered Approach’ to avoid crowding at the session sites and even plan break-up sessions, if staggered approach is not effective to avoid crowding. The sessions are also planned in such a way that not more than 10 beneficiaries are present at the session site at one given point in time.
