India being one of the most developing countries are still yet to grow. Especially in remote and rural areas, the research shows that more than half of the infants are not able to get the basic vaccines like polio.
There are many kids that face lifelong problems and it is all because of lack of proper vaccination and immunization.
Even though government’s lukewarm attempts has been meeting the need partially. Clearly doesn’t meet the required need.
