LAHORE: “The government health facility is located at a distance and we were reluctant to go there. But we came here because this place is easily accessible”, says the mother of 10-month old Mashal Khan after getting routine immunization to the child at a specially organized health camp set up in Lahore’s old Victoria School.
“Since we were away to our ancestral home my child missed out on OPV drops in the last campaign and also did not receive measles vaccination, this camp has helped me catch up on those missed opportunities,” says the mother.
