NEW DELHI: After years of discussion and a recent promise to Bill Gates, India is now rolling out the country’s first pentavalent vaccine.
The Union health ministry has written to the governments of Tamil Nadu and Kerala — the two states where the five-in-one vaccine will be first introduced, because of their high routine immunization coverage rate, to put in place manpower, train them and also finalise the implementation plan.
