PM Modi introduces campaign for small children and pregnant women

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has introduced a detailed immunisation campaign called ‘Intensified Mission Indradhanush’ or IMI.

The programme aims to reach every child below the age of two years and pregnant women who are not covered under the regular immunisation programme.

The idea is to prevent small children to suffer from any disease that can be prevented by taking vaccines.

A seven-day immunisation campaign will be held each month from now till January 2018 in 173 districts and 17 cities.

It is to make sure that 90% of the areas are covered to get full immunisation by 2018 instead of 2020.
