National immunization days

Pyongyang, November 22 (KCNA) — October 20 and November 20 are defined as national immunization days in Korea.


To mark the days, the national inspection office of the Ministry of Public Health organised some 12,000 inoculation teams and about 45,000 health workers were mobilized in poliomyelitis vaccination throughout the country.

Preventive inoculation for all children below the age of five has been completed.

This is an example that shows the validity and vitality of the Worker’s Party of Korea’s policy of preventive medicine.

On these days every year, the hygienic and anti-epidemic organs at all levels conduct preventive inoculation and raise the people’s immunity in a responsible manner. The inoculators of the preventive and curative medical service organs conduct vaccination for the people according to the yearly inoculation calendar distributed by the National Medical Authority.

Despite difficulties in the economy, the state takes positive measures to produce sufficient quantities of preventive medicines.
