JALALABAD (PAN): A fresh anti-polio vaccination campaign, targeting 860,000 children below five years, began in eastern Afghanistan on Sunday, an official  said.

Under the immunisation drive, the first in 2013, children in eastern Kunar, Nuristan, Laghman and Nangarhar provinces would be administered polio drops, Nangarhar public health director Dr. Baz Mohammad Sherzad told Pajhwok Afghan News.

He said no positive case had so far been recorded in the eastern region since January. Sherzad urged residents to help polio teams and volunteers make the drive a success.
