Thiruvananthapuram: Three men have been arrested for allegedly attacking a public health nurse during a measles and rubella vaccination drive in Kerala’s Malappuram district.

The nurse, Shyamala B, was roughed up and her arm was twisted by the accused during a vaccination drive at GLP school in Edavoor.

The police has said the attackers were all residents of Malappuram where the vaccination drive was happening. The attackers were armed with knives, they added.

Kerala Health Minister KK Shailaja has condemned the incident and said that strict action will be taken. “Such cases should be seen in isolation with no support from public at large,” he said.

The vaccination drive is being held across Kerala to vaccinate children up-to age of 15-years against measles and rubella. Traditionally, some communities in Malappuram have been resistant to vaccinations.
