Three new vaccines added to immunization programme
The government has given in-principle approval to inclusion of three new vaccines in the universal immunization programme of the country which includes the Injectible Polio Vaccine, parliament was told Tuesday.
The other vaccines are the Rubella vaccine and Rotavirus vaccine, Health Minister Harsh Vardhan told the Rajya Sabha.
"The centre has not been delaying the introduction of injectable polio vaccine due to cost implications," he said in a written reply.
Harsh Vardhan said the National Technical Advisory Group on Immunization (NTAGI) had in July itself recommended IPV as an additional dose along with 3rd dose of Diphtheria, Pertussis and Tetanus (DPT) in the country.
