New Delhi: To create awareness about vaccinating every eligible child and intensify efforts to improve routine immunisation coverage, government launched Special Immunisation Week. Under the plan, four weeks -- one week each of the months of April, June, July and August -- will be used to hold special immunisation sessions in high-risk areas across the country, that will help improve immunisation. Every year, full immunisation prevents about four lakh under-five deaths from vaccine preventable diseases in India, but close to 75 lakh children every year miss the benefits of such childhood vaccinations.
