Have you always wanted to participate in a polio vaccination campaign in India?

This may be your last chance.


If interested in the offer below please contact Michelle Tanner in the first instance.

Volunteers are invited to participate in the 3-5 January 2020 National (polio) Immunisation Days (NIDs) in India. The experience will combine:
  • Participation in polio immunisation activities
  • Interaction with local Rotarians
  • Visits to local Rotary projects
  • Experiences in Delhi, Agra and Jaipur
Soon India will no longer use oral polio vaccines as they will be replaced with the injected polio vaccine. This is a normal part of the eradication programme. At this point, Rotary volunteers will no longer be able to participate in polio immunisation programmes. If you have always wanted to participate in an NID this may be your last chance.
The Rotary Club of Agra Tajmahal is offering 3, 5, 8 or 10-night options for your trip. Expressions of interest forms and further information are available from District 9930 Polio Chair Michelle Tanner or the RC Agra Tajmahal’s Facebook page.
