L/Subansiri records 78.79% coverage during 2nd round of MP

ZIRO, Dec 19: Lower Subansiri district reported 78.79% coverage during the second round of Mission Pratirakhsha (MP).
This was disclosed during a meeting of the district task force on immunization (DTFI) chaired by DC Chukhu Takar here on Wednesday, with DMO (in-charge) Dr Kuru Tama, DDSE Hibu Tama, DTFI members and medical staff attending.
When informed about a few ‘refusal cases’ in Deed and Old Ziro areas, the DC directed the medical officers of the respective areas to “pursue and convince reluctant targets to get vaccinated.”
He called for unified effort from all the stakeholders for the success of the mission, and requested the DMO and the DRCHO to ensure accurate data collection by the ground-level workers.
Taking serious note of officers being absent from their places of posting, Takar warned that strict action would be initiated against such officers.
“More awareness towards vaccination programmes and motivating the people can in the long run help achieve our target,” he added.
DRCHO (in-charge) Dr Radhe Anku presented the micro-plan for the third round of MP which will be launched on 22 December.
She requested the medical superintendent, Dr Kime Horming, to direct the staff of the EPI section to educate the people on the vaccination modules. (DIPRO)
