Bengaluru: Amid Covid-19 scare, the state health and family welfare department is holding the pulse polio campaign on January 17.

The health department issued separate SoPs to carry out this exercise. The vaccination centres have been increased and the spots have been mapped on the 'vaccinationcenternearbyme' app.

According to the authorities, as the eradication of polio is as important as containing Covid-19, it was decided to go ahead with the Pulse polio drive which is an annual exercise.

Pulse polio drop is mandatory for all the children below five years of age
