National Emergency Operations Centre (NECC) Coordinator Dr Rana Safdar chaired a meeting of paediatrics on Thursday. Medical practitioners from across the country participated in the meeting. Hailing the PPA, Dr Safdar said that the association has always played a major role in anti-polio campaigns. The PPA officials urged parents to allow their children to be vaccinated during the upcoming anti-polio drive starting from September 21.
