MR Vaccination Campaign.

MR Vaccination Campaign.

MR stands for Measles & Rubella.

□ The campaign was launched by Ministry of Health & Family Welfare.

□ The campaign aims to reach out to 41 Cr children in the age group of 9 months – 15 years.

□ Measles is a part of Universal Immunisation Programme (UIP).

After the campaign the MR vaccine will be introduced replacing the Measles vaccine. MR vaccination will help in fighting Measles & Rubella simultaneously. Currently, Rubella is not a part of UIP. Hence, after the campaign it would be a new addition to UIP.

With Great Love,
