Infants in rural Gurugram vulnerable to diseases
12 days ago
Times Of India
With only 10.8 coverage, poor vaccination in the rural parts of Gurugram puts nearly 90 per cent of infants at risk of contracting deadly infectious diseases including tuberculosis, measles, and polio. The numbers, provided by the National Family Health Survey 4 (NFHS4), add to the worry as overall vaccination rates in the state has dropped from 65.3 per cent to 62.2 per cent in the past 10 years. UNICEF-India identifies Haryana as one of the states with highest inequity between rural and urban areas when it comes to immunisation programmes.
