He asked the medical officers, paramedical staff, ASHAs and AWWs to work with missionary zeal, ensuring reaching the unreached and dropout children up to two years and pregnant mothers with all available vaccines and accelerate full immunization.

While reviewing preparation of micro plan and district preparedness, Tatak asked the MOs to identify the gaps and challenges in conducting routine immunization so that they could prepare themselves for better implementation of IMI.

Dr Dai while informing that campaign and implementation of MRVC in East Siang was quite successful assured the DC that besides IMI the assigned officers would also conduct ‘house to house intensified survey’ on ante natal check-up for missed out women and also prepare ‘micro-plan’ for 2018-19 timely.
