Union Health Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan launched Intensified Mission Indradhanush (IMI) 3.0 which will be conducted in two rounds starting from February 22 and March 22 across 250 districts/urban areas identified in 29 States/Union Territories. He released the Operational Guidelines for it and the awareness material/IEC package developed as part of the campaign.

IMI 3.0 is an initiative by the government to provide immunization free of cost to pregnant women and children in India. To strengthen and re-energize the programme and achieve full immunization coverage for all children and pregnant women at a rapid pace, the Government of India launched “Mission Indradhanush” in December 2014.

Expanding on the role of the campaign in the context of the present COVID crisis, he said, "The country has successfully been able to contain COVID19 and the drive for two indigenous vaccines is being carried out in the country. With this, the importance of a vaccine has never been so strongly felt.

Intensified Mission Indradhanush 3.0 (IMI 3.0) aimed to reach the unreached population with all the available vaccines under Universal Immunisation Programme (UIP) and thereby accelerate the full immunization and complete immunization coverage of children and pregnant women."He also detailed the provisions in the Budget that lays high priority on health and wellbeing.
