Mr. Subramania Siva Managing Trustee, Service Initiative for Voluntary Action Trust, Coimbatore, emphasized the role of NGO. While the NGOs have been pulled in at the state level to collaborate, the same needs to be done at the district level too. He criticized the negative propaganda spreading through social media against vaccination and its influence on the learned.

He suggested, “since MGNREGA works are continuing in some rural areas, the government could drive to such locations to do on the spot vaccination”. It is only through innovative methods that maximum inoculation can be attained.
