Hello Elisa, Thank you for the question.


Immunization is one of the measures to prevent infectious diseases by giving vaccines that will stimulate the immune system to be immune to a particular disease. Besides children. adults can also receive immunizations.


Have you ever received a polio vaccine when you were a child? Polio or poliomyelitis is a viral infection that enters a person's body through the oral cavity or nose, then spreads to the bloodstream that attacks nerves, causing permanent muscle paralysis. This virus is easily transmitted through direct contact with the stool of the patient, consuming food and drink contaminated with the stool of the patient, through coughing or sneezing from the patient. This disease can be prevented by giving the polio vaccine. Polio immunization is a compulsory immunization given to children. Even adults can receive the polio vaccine.


If you have never received a polio vaccine at all when you are a child, you can receive a 3-dose injection of polio vaccine, with the first and second vaccine spacing is 1-2 months while the second and third vaccine spacing is 6- 12 months. If when you children have received 4 doses of polio vaccine, then you are recommended to receive 1 dose of booster vaccine that will last a lifetime.


Please consult your doctor immediately to receive the polio vaccine. Also discuss with your doctor about how many doses of vaccine you should receive.


Hope this helps.
