Vaccines protect children from harmful infectious diseases: PMA

MUZAFFARGARH – Vaccine for all contagious diseases was being provided uninterruptedly at all health units of the district, spokes­man of Punjab Medical Asso­ciation said on Saturday.

In connection to this, mo­bile teams of Expanded Pro­gramme on Immunization (EPI) were present at almost all union councils of Muzaffar­garh, said Maqbool Alam in a statement here.

Moreover, he said that chil­dren below and five years of age were regularly given polio drops at all EPI fixed centres and concerned UCs. He said and added that according to a third party review, ratio of po­lio vaccination in the district remained up to 99 percent while routine vaccination to local population had reached to 98 percent. He told that the vaccines protect children from harmful infectious diseases and condemned negative pro­paganda against contiguous diseases on social media and termed it as ‘criminal negli­gence’ and ‘irresponsible act’.


Tehsil Bar Association Ali­pur demanded of the Punjab government to ensure duali­sation of Muzaffargarh-Alipur road as the heavy traffic flow was causing accidents on daily basis. President Bar Associa­tion Malik Abdul Hakeem and General Secretary Jam Mu­hammad Danish talking to APP expressed concern over death of Shaista Bibi (17), a student of Class 10th, in road mishap on Friday. They stated that Muzaffargarh-Alipur road had become very dangerous as many accidents had been reported on daily basis which had caused many deaths and also rendered many people in­jured and handicapped. 

They suggested dualisation of the road as the only solu­tion to the problem. They ap­pealed Punjab government to pay attention on prior basis. However, they also announced a full day’s strike in support of their demand.
