To evaluate all steps of pulse polio immunization on special sub national immunization day.


On a sub-national immunization day (SNID), 120 booths were randomly selected from 662 booths by probability proportionate to size (PPS) sampling technique.


It was observed that attendance in the district level meeting was thin (30%). 34% workers were doing this work for the first time without any training. 40% of the vaccinators were neither working according to micro plan nor were same as mentioned in the micro plan. Supervision too was found deficient.


In a sustained and long drawn programme like IPPI, sustaining the interest and motivation of health personnel is paramount. This paper emphasises the importance of continued re-orientation training to keep them motivated and updated.
