Stop The Spread, Vaccinate Ahead
Childhood vaccination has been a major step towards preventing deadly diseases. India accounts for a significant proportion of measles-related deaths in the world. As a part of global efforts to reduce the prevalence of these life-threatening diseases, the government launched the nationwide Measles-Rubella vaccination campaign. They aim to reach out to as many children as possible.
Under this initiative, an MR vaccination drive was organised on the 3rd of April 2023, by the East Delhi District Health Department, at our Hathi Basti School, New Delhi. Fifteen children between 9 months to 5 years of age, were given this life-saving vaccination.
