New Delhi, June 10: In their latest report, the experts from Indian Public Health Association, Indian Association of Preventive and Social Medicine and Indian Association of Epidemiologists had said that vaccinating the vulnerable and those at risk, instead of mass population-wide inoculation including children, should be the aim at present.
