SUKKUR: Ghotki Deputy Commissioner Syed Aijaz Ali Shah on Monday inaugurated the anti-polio campaign by administering polio drops to children at the District Headquarters Hospital.
Speaking to the senior officials of the Health and Education departments, heads of vaccination teams and other staff, he directed for maximum coverage and said that every vaccinated child should be given a finger-mark to identify administered ones from the unadministered.
In this connection, the deputy commissioner (DC) also held meetings with the heads of various union councils to discuss arrangements.
The DC appealed to the parents and guardians of children to cooperate with the teams visiting their homes.
“It would be difficult for us to control the disease if parents do not cooperate with the teams and refuse to get their children vaccinated,” he said.
He also advised parents to ensure completing the general vaccination courses of their babies to save them from crippling diseases.
