Along with the rest of the nation, Nagaland will be conducting Intensive Pulse Polio Immunisation (IPPI) today (Sunday).

The campaign which targets children aged 0-5 years will go on for three days, informed Dr. GR Rio, deputy director of the department of Health and Family Welfare. He added that there are 2206 booths all over Nagaland from where IPPI will be conducted.

“Our target is 1, 51, 45 (of children aging between 0-5),” he said and informed that for the next two days (February 1 and 2), there will be house-to-house visitation.

Meanwhile, the launching programme of National Immunisation Day will also be held at Naga Hospital Authority Kohima (NHAK) on the same day starting from 8 am in the state capital.

On account of the launching of countrywide Covid-19 vaccine on January 16, the national polio immunisation day was postponed to January 31.
