Via The Express Tribune: Vaccinations: Polio drops successfully administered in 24 UCs. Excerpt:
The Sindh provincial government successfully completed the administration of polio drops in 24 Union Councils (UC) amidst tight security and a complete ban on motorcycle riding.
The polio workers started the campaign on the scheduled time, along with the police and Rangers personnel. However, it was also reported that a few polio workers were forced to wait for security personnel who arrived late.
Some of the areas were completely cordoned off while the workers did not face any problems in most areas.
The campaign was launched in three UCs of Gadap, four UCs of Gulshan-e-Iqbal, four UCs of Baldia Town, three UCs of Orangi Town, three UCs of SITE Town, three UCs of Bin Qasim Town, two UCs of Landhi and one UC of Saddar and Gulberg each.
The polio workers were unable to complete the task on February 23 when the plan was first being implemented in the city’s high-risk areas, only being able to complete the campaign in 19 out of the targeted 24 UCs.
