LAHORE   -   Punjab Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) Co­ordinator and head of the polio prorgamme Ms Syedah Ramallah has called for higher focus on high-risk mobile populations so that every vul­nerable child receives critical polio vaccination on time. The coordinator was speaking during meet­ings with the Deputy Commissioners of Attock and Rawalpindi on Wednesday. The head of the polio programme travelled to Attock on Wednes­day in first leg of her mission. After meeting the top officials in Attock, the coordinator travelled to Rawalpindi the same day to meet with the admin­istration and health department high-ups. Polio eradication partners and the District Health Man­agement officials were also in attendance during the meetings. The EOC coordinator stressed on the vaccination, profiling and mapping of the high-risk mobile populations. “The profiling, registration and vaccination of communities belonging to the vulnerable mobile groups needs to be reconfirmed before the next campaign”, instructed Ms Ramal­lah. “The district has persistent data quality as well as micro-plan issues which need to be fixed. Areas which are located across the provincial boundary inside Punjab need to be combed to ensure that all households are accounted for and no child is out of the micro-plan”, stressed the EOC coordinator. The head of the polio programme expressed concern about Hazro tehsil and urged the district to focus on this remote area. During the meeting Deputy Commissiner Hassan Waqar Cheema assured the coordinator that micro-plans will be fixed before October 15. The DC sought the support of the po­lio programme in sensitizing communities on po­lio eradication through various media platforms
