It is important to mention here that pulse polio immunisation programme is the campaign against polio disease launched by government of India through department of family welfare. The aim of the campaign is to administer 2 drops of anti polio vaccine in every phase in order to eradicate polio disease. The disease curbs the mobility or walking capacity of children and cripple the person for ever. Thus general public should immunise their children.
