Intensified Mission Indradhanush
Partially immunized and unimmunized children are most susceptible to childhood diseases and are at higher risk of dying. Every year in India, 5 lakh children die due to vaccine preventable diseases (2014 data). But, immunizing children goes beyond saving individual lives. It helps in preventing large-scale outbreaks of diseases as well as keeping the disease under control in an area, thus reducing the stress on an already burdened health system. Thus, full immunization is critical for reducing child mortality and progressing on socio-economic indicators.
