New Delhi: The district health department will begin a three-day-long intensified pulse polio immunisation drive in the district from Sunday. The programme aims to cover around 3.5 lakh children below the age of five, the Hindustan Times reported.

Gurugram district urban nodal officer Dr MP Singh said the focus is on clusters and remote areas and for the drive, around 1,267 booths will be set up in different areas.

He added the drive will cover 10 primary health centres (PHCs) and 18 urban primary health centres (UPHCs), and that a door-to-door awareness drive will be conducted on Monday. More than 100 mobile teams of vaccinators and supervisors have been deputed.

According to the district health department, an IPPI is conducted annually to ensure thorough coverage of the vaccine. Haryana was declared polio-free in 2014.
