Manipur: COVID-19 pandemic did not hinder routine immunization, says State Nodal Officer

AIR PiC
In Manipur, the prevailing COVID-19 pandemic was not able to hinder the routine immunization and the campaign is going in a very smooth way. The routine immunization is conducted throughout the year for new born babies and children to protect them from various diseases like Japanese Encephalitis, Polio, Hepatitis B, Hib, Tetanus, Rubella, Measles, Flu, Pneumococcal diseases etc.

Speaking to AIR News exclusively, Manipur State Nodal Officer for Immunization Dr. Th. Nandakishore Singh said the prevailing curfew and lockdown due to COVID-19 pandemic have effect on the routine immunizations in the state.

However, it does not hinder the achievement. He said, during the year 2019-20 the overall immunization achievement was 90 per cent. But, this time even though the immunizations are reduced to some extent, achievement would be between 70 to 90 per cent. Since the pandemic started, awareness on the importance of immunization amongst the parents has increased a lot. In some places, the officials faced difficulty in managing and maintaining social distancing due to huge turnout.

Appealing to all to immunize their children in time which will help in fighting complicated diseases like Corona virus, Dr. Nandakishore said that during the current year, around 7,000 children have been immunized by June and the target number by the end of December 2020 is 37,000 children.
