The second phase of this year's Pulse Polio immunisation was carried out across the State on Sunday, with the district health administration administering oral polio vaccine to 87.9 per cent of children below five years of age. The target population in the district was 2,48,280, of whom 2,13,516 children were vaccinated. The rest would be covered when the health workers go on mop-up rounds in the next two days by visiting homes, health officials said.
