Pulse Polio: This is a mass immunization program to eradicate poliomyelitis from India. This program was launched in 1995-96. This program has been undertaken with active cooperation from government agencies, NGOs, UNICEF, and CDC.
Key Objectives of Pulse Polio:

  1. Not a single child should be missed.
  2. High level of surveillance.
  3. Reporting of any new case within 14 days.

Polio booths are settled throughout the country to cover all the children below 5 years of age. Volunteers are hired to administer the polio vaccine.
OPV (Oral Polio Vaccine): OPV is an attenuated vaccine. It is produced by the passage of the virus through non-human cells at a sub-physiological temperature. This produces spontaneous mutation in the viral genome.
A single vial of OPV usually contains 10-20 doses.
On 27th March 2014, WHO declared India a polio-free nation as no new case was reported in the last 3 years.
