A child receives polio vaccination drops during a National Pulse Polio Immunisation (PPI) programme in Amritsar yesterday. Even as India declared itself as polio-free with no reported cases for three consecutive years, the vaccine will nevertheless continue to be administered to children across the country to reach every child up to five years of age to ensure a high level of immunity.
