A total of 24,149 children between the age of 15 months and 15 years will be vaccinated against typhoid at seven local levels of Humla. In a one-day seminar organized by the Public Health Service Office Humla on Monday, it was informed that the children would be vaccinated against typhoid from April 8 to April 18.

According to Prem Singh, acting head of the office, the vaccination will be carried out in one phase across the country from April 10 to April 30. However, due to the geographical remoteness of Humla, the vaccination will be completed from April 8 to April 18. Health workers will be deployed for five to six days to vaccinate. Health workers will be deployed for the children in Limi of North Namkha village municipality of the district. If the health workers could not go there due to snow and various problems, they would be deployed for the second time, said the acting head of the office, Singh.

There are 150 vaccination centres in seven villages of Humla, according to the Public Health Service Office, Humla. The children will be vaccinated against typhoid from 18 vaccination centres in Namkha, 25 in Simkot, 18 in Kharpunath, 25 in Sarkegad, 25 in Chankheli, and 19 in Adanchuli and 20 in Tanjkot.

As Humla is a geographically remote district, it is said that the government of Nepal aims to complete this campaign from April 8 to April 18.

Chief District Officer Sita Pariyar, Fighter of New Bhairavi Dal Gulm Ganesh Khadka, Deputy Superintendent of Police Krishna Ola of District Police Office Humla, Chief of Armed Police Force No. 44 Gulm Gehendra Bhandari and other media persons participated in the vaccination campaign against typhoid.
