The President Inaugurates National Immunization Day

The President of India, Smt. Pratibha Devisingh Patil inaugurated the National Immunization Day by administering Polio Vaccines to children at Rashtrapati Bhavan on February 18, 2012. Over the last one year India has not recorded even a single case of polio. In the past a large share of polio cases in the world, were reported from India. The Nationwide Campaign begins tomorrow, and it is hoped that over the next two years, not a single case would be reported, so that India can be declared polio free in January 2014.
