Other local levels of the district had already been declared fully immunized. Immunization officer at District Public Health Office, Kaski, Ek Narayan Lamsal said that 8,698 children below 15 months were vaccinated in the district. “Children up to the age of 15 months have been administered 11 types of vaccines,” Lamsal said.

At the program, Gandaki Province Chief Minister Prithvi Subba Gurung said his government was ready to collaborate with central and local governments. He added that the province government was ready to do anything to improve the health of people in the province.

With the declaration of Kaski as a fully immunized district, Syangja is the only district left to be declared fully vaccinated in the province.

Province 4 Minister for Social Development Nardevi Pun Magar said they would soon make Syangja a fully-immunized district in order to earn the status of the fully-vaccinated province.

Member of the House of the Representatives and former health minister Khagraj Adhikari said earning the status of the fully immunized district had added a new challenge.
