MR Vaccination for Children below 15 years
(A Social Health Awareness campaign by Indiana Hospital)
In order to eradicate Measles, Rubella & CRS diseases from India, The Government of India & Government of Karnataka along with 5 other states have jointly undertaken an MR Vaccination drive from 7th February to 1st March. All children from the age of 9 months to 15 years will be vaccinated under this program. We as doctors support this cause and request all parents also to support this and vaccinate your children. This is completely safe and it can be given even if they have been previously given MR Vaccine.
False propaganda and news have been spread in social media about this campaign. Please refrain from spreading this information or forwarding the same. We hereby again request you to join hands and support this drive for the better future of our young ones.
Dr. Ali Kumble, Chief Pediatrician & Chairman Indiana Hospital, Dr. Yusuf Kumble, Chief Interventional Cardiologist & Managing Director Indiana Hospital & Dr. Santosh T. Soans, IAP National President addressed the gathering.
