Three rounds of pulse polio immunization in January, February and March, 2007 were evaluated in Valsad and Vapi cities. Randomly selected team members of 50% booths and teams working during house to house activity were interviewed. Approximately 80% of eligible children were immunized on booths whereas remaining eligible were covered during house to house activity. In February, 2007 round, mOPV type 1 was first time introduced in Gujarat. Utilizers of booth services received information about these rounds mainly from television and miking. During house to house activity, few unimmunised children were found. Adequate manpower with proper training and community mobilization can improve the coverage.
