Dear viewers 

For some long standing problems, solution can be very siimple - we have to just do it.

For saving the children from the lethal Vaccine Preventable Diseases (VPDs), they are to be vaccinated timely, with all the vaccines included in the National Immunization Schedule (NIS) and also optional vaccines applicable to the country.

In India, for attaining Full Immunization (FIC), a child has to receive one dose of BCG, 3 doses of DPT (now included in Pentavalent), 3 doses of bOPV other than Zero OPV and one dose of Measles Containing Vaccine (MCV) before the first birth day.

For complete immunization, after attaining FIC, child has to receive DPT 1st Booster and OPV between 16-24 months, with which MCV 2 is administered.

Since April 2016; two doses of 0.1ml IPV are administered intradermally along with first & third doses of OPV & Pentavalent.

JE / Rota and PCV are administered in selected states / districts.

As per “PRACTICAL GUIDE FOR THE DESIGN, USE AND PROMOTION OF HOME BASED RECORDS IN IMMUNIZATION PROGRAMMES” by Immunization, Vaccines and Biologicals – (WHO); home-based records (HBR) currently vary in complexity across and sometimes

within countries and lack standardization in content.

Please find the attachment for the simplest solution.

Best
