Fatehpur. The corona pandemic has also slowed the pace of baby vaccination and polio drop campaigns. The health department was unable to achieve the target of 50 percent in May 2021. At the same time, these actions have not stopped even after the outbreak of Corona. Doctors say that parents with children do not come to the hospital to get vaccinated for fear of Corona.
Children are vaccinated weekly on Wednesdays and Saturdays. The vaccination of pregnant women takes place every Friday. A few days after the delivery, the action begins with the vaccination of the newborn on the ward. Corona knocked in March 2020. From March itself there was a lockdown and the health department was fully involved with Kovid. Vaccination of BCG, Penta, and MR-1 is carried out in the district’s state hospitals, CHCs, and PHCs. This campaign continues in the Corona period. As part of the campaign, children up to the age of 16 are vaccinated.
Although there was some relief from the corona infection from October 2020, the vaccination campaign picked up speed. At the same time, the pace of vaccination slowed down in the last week of March 2021, when the corona cases increased again. According to doctors, the main reason for this is that people are afraid of Corona and do not come to have their children vaccinated in state hospitals.

Due to Corona, the vaccination rate is slow. The vaccination was not stopped in the Corona period last year and will not be stopped this time either. Even 50% of the target person was not vaccinated. People will come to get vaccinated when the situation normalizes somewhat.
