April 2022: Khyber Pakhtunkhwa launches special polio vaccination effort

Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province launched a special polio vaccination effort in four districts (Bannu, Lakki Marwat, North Waziristan and Tank) after a polio case was reported from North Waziristan on April 22. It was the first case of wild polio in Pakistan in 15 months, and the third case reported globally in 2022. If there is a shortage of vaccinators due to the Eid holiday, the campaign will aim to cover the remaining children on a second drive scheduled for May 23.
