“Serving the community with the gift of immunity.”
The Government of India observes 16 March as National Vaccination Day to acknowledge and appreciate the hard work of frontline health care workers to ensure the vaccination of every child. The day was first observed in the year 1995 when the Pulse Polio Programme started and the first dose of Oral Polio Vaccine was given. India has made remarkable progress in scaling up routine immunization through intensified vaccination drives. The country is moving towards measles and rubella elimination through the vaccination of over 324 million children. Vaccination has become the need of the hour in today’s world. The day aims to spread the incredible health benefits of getting vaccinated and how it can prevent many diseases and disorders. GD Goenka Public School, Rohini, Sector 9, joins hands to spread awareness on this day.
