2023 Nov 03, 12:36,

 Children under five years of age are being administered Vitamin 'A' and deworming tablets across the country today and tomorrow.

The national Vitamin 'A' program of the Ministry of Health and Population is taking a lead in administering Vitamin 'A' and deworming tablets.

Chief of the Child Health and Immunization Section at the Department of Health Services, Dr Abhiyan Gautam, said that the children from six months up to five years would receive Vitamin 'A' and deworming tables from women health volunteers who have been mobilized across the country.

The first phase of the Vitamin 'A' campaign scheduled for October 19 and 20 is being implemented today as that could not happen in October due to Dashain's vacation.

Around 2.7 million children would be administered Vitamin 'A' and deworming tablets to 2.4 million children.
