By Correspondent

HAILAKANDI, March 23 - The Hailakandi district administration is making all preparedness for launching of Measles Rubella vaccination campaign in the district from April 26.

Taking part in the crucial District Task Force meeting on Measles Rubella vaccination campaign, Commissioner and Secretary, Health and Family Welfare, Assam, Anurag Goel, asked all the stakeholders to pitch in their efforts for achieving cent per cent coverage of children in the age group of nine months and less than 15 years.

Goel directed the officials of the Education Department to find out the exact number of students enrolled in Government and private schools and not on the basis of attendence alone to ensure that no child is left out from the upcoming immunization drive.

Emphasising on the need to impart proper training to the vaccinators and other field personnel for smooth conduct of the MR campaign, Goel said, � It has to be made known to the field personnel that the MR vaccine has to be kept in ice pack and used within four hours.�

The Commissioner and Secretary said the stakeholders involved have to carry the message loud and clear that the MR vaccination drive is safe and effective and there is no cause for worry or fear.

Goel urged the health authorities to organise sensitization programmes to create mass awareness on MR vaccination involving students, teachers, guardians, ASHA and Anganwadi workers, medical practitioners, Circle Officers, BDOs and other officials of line departments.

Deputy Commissioner, Hailakandi, Adil Khan, who is the chairperson of District Task Force, asked ADC, Ruth Lienthang and officials of Education Department to work out on the exact number of students enrolled in government and non-government schools, including non-going students for attaining 100 per cent coverage. Khan said that the administration would ask the school authorities to cooperate in the immunization drive.

Khan stressed the need to organize workshops not only at district level but also block level for the success of the immunization exercise. � The message must go that the MR vaccine has proven to be safe and effective with a single dose of vaccine,� said Khan.
