The ministry of health publishes a number of advertisements both at print and electronic media before the beginning of these campaigns each year. After all the efforts made by government, in shape of expenditure and planning’s, the locals should not mandatory but obligatory make sure that there children must not remain to get these important dosages of vaccines and medicine in any circumstances. If the teams do not reach there area in any case they should take there children to local centers.
