The residents of union council Takhtikhel ended boycott of anti-polio drive and expressed willingness over vaccination of their children. The announcement to this effect was made after administration officials held successful talks with area elders in Shah Tora Takhtikhel on Monday. Area people had boycotted the polio eradication campaign arguing that the rural union council is hit hard by power related problems including load shedding and low voltage.
They told vaccinators that they would not immunize children against the crippling diseases until and unless authorities concerned resolved their electricity problems. The district health department launched case response anti polio drive in 19 union councils of the district including Takhtikhel on Monday.
