Immunization:

Ministry wants Rs 200 m

The Healthcare and Nutrition Ministry has requested Rs.200 million from the Treasury to commence an advertising campaign to strengthen the National Immunization Program, a Ministry spokesman said.

According to the spokesman, around 80 percent of the program has crashed due to the Opposition’s mud slinging campaign during the Presidential Election. “Because of this, parents had lost trust on the National Immunization Program and do not bring their children for immunization,” the spokesman said.

During the recent Presidential Election, the Opposition used the State health sector as one of its main targets and did everything possible to destroy public confidence in National Immunization Program.

The ministry handed over investigations to the CID, after initial investigations revealed a conspiracy.

A crusade was carried out by the Opposition and certain media institutions against the State health sector fabricating stories based on certain incidents such as the deaths of two schoolgirls who received rubella vaccine, some dengue deaths and other issues.
