The difference between National Immunization Day (NID) and Sub National Immunization Day (SNID) is that the NID is a three days campaign where day one is dedicated for booth activity and rest two days are dedicated for House – to – House activity while the SNID is a two days House – to – House activity which is being conducted to focus on High Risk areas/ vulnerable areas only.

In the Sub National Immunization Round (SNID), approx.80 Supervisors monitored the activity for which 602 teams (consisting of 2 members in a team) of vaccinators were deployed for House – to – House visits.
