12 Children Given Sanitizer Instead Of Polio Drops In Maharashtra

In a case of huge negligence, 12 children were given sanitizer instead of oral polio vaccine in a village in Yavatmal district of Maharashtra, about 700 km from state capital Mumbai, an official said on Monday.

Twelve children under five years of age were admitted to a hospital after they were administered sanitiser drops instead of polio vaccine in Maharashtra's Yavatmal on Monday, informed Yavatmal District Council Chief Executive Officer Shrikrishna Panchal.

The official stated that the children are now doing fine and three officials including a health worker, doctor, and ASHA worker will be suspended in connection with the incident.

This comes after President Ram Nath Kovind launched the National Polio Immunization Drive for 2021 by administering polio drops to children less than five years old at Rashtrapati Bhawan on January 30.
