According to officials, the drive is being organized due to the large number measles cases reported in Sindh. Routine security will be provided during the drive, sources said.

It should be mentioned that the vaccination efforts have been called forth many times in Karachi due to security reasons.

More than ten polio volunteers have been voted down by terrorists in the last 1.5 years in Karachi.
