Pentavalent vaccination launches in East Siang

Joining the rest of the country, Pentavalent vaccine was launched on Saturday in East Siang District. Now the multiple numbers of injections containing five antigens will be reduced to just one injection per session. The launch formally started with first administration of intramuscular vaccine to an infant by the East Siang Deputy Commissioner Isha Khosla at the general hospital, Pasighat in Arunachal Pradesh. 

Khosla emphasized on awareness on the newly introduced vaccine, urged the health department to make the routine immunization successful in the district, and further assured all necessary help and cooperation from her administration. She while appealing all parents to get their children vaccinated has expressed hope that with the launching of vaccine, no children in the district will be left without vaccination.
