Around 120,000 permanent and 20,000 makeshift centres will remain open from 8am to 4pm

The national Vitamin A-plus campaign is set to kick off on Saturday, with the aim to feed children, aged between 6 and 59 months, the Vitamin A-plus capsules.

Health workers and volunteers will feed the capsules to around 21 million children at 120,000 permanent and 20,000 makeshift centres from 8am to 4pm, reports BSS.

Some 2.5 million children aged between 6 and 12 months will be given blue-coloured capsules, while around 19.5 million children aged between one and five years will be given red-coloured capsules.

The parents are requested not to bring their children with an empty stomach for administering the Vitamin A-plus capsules. Children should not be fed the capsule forcefully or while they are crying.

Children aged below six months or over five years or with any kind of illness should not be given the capsule as well.
