Immunisation card compulsory for admissions in schools
Planning to take your ward for admissions in schools of Uttarakhand? Don’t forget to carry the immunisation card along as Uttarakhand government has made it compulsory for admissions in schools. Under the new policy, the health workers of the area would issue a certificate that the child has been immunized based on which the parents would be able to get their wards admitted in play group, nursery and first class of any government or private school. The immunisation card issued by doctors working in private hospitals would also be accepted as certificate of immunisation.
The Additional director National programme and state immunisation officer, Dr Saroj Naithani said that the move to make the immunisation certificate compulsory would help in achieving the goal of 100 percent immunisation under Universal Immunisation Programme. She however clarified that the students failing to produce immunisation certificate would be given admission in the school but a list of un immunised or partially immunised students would be prepared by a nodal officer who would inform the medical officer concerned about such students. It would ensure that such children are immunised, she added.
