India on Thursday rescheduled the National Immunisation Day, under which polio drops are administered to all children under the age of 5, to January 31 amid countrywide rollout of Covid-19 vaccination drive on January 16. The Health Ministry said, in view of this world's largest Covid-19 immunisation exercise, the govt decided to reschedule the Polio vaccination day. On Saturday, the government is expecting to administer at least the first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine to all healthcare workers, estimated at one crore, over the next two months and start with frontline workers too.
