Hello Ningsih, Thank you for the question.
The polio vaccine is available in the form of oral polio vaccine (OPV) and injectable polio vaccine (IPV). This vaccine is given to prevent infection transmitted by the polio virus which can cause muscle paralysis (polio disease). This vaccine is given to newborns (polio 0), 2 months of age (polio 1), 4 months (polio 2), 6 months (polio 3), and advanced vaccine (polio 4) when children are 18 months old. OPV vaccine is given to newborn babies, while for polio 1, polio 2, polio 3, it can be given OPV or IPV and at least one IPV must be received at the same time as OPV 3. If it is difficult to find this vaccine at the health center, try to find this vaccine at the facility other health. You can try to find this IPV vaccine at the pediatrician's clinic or the nearest hospital. IPV vaccine should be given as much as possible so that children are protected from polio. If the child is already scheduled to receive a measles vaccine, then the measles vaccine can be given. The measles vaccine does not need to wait for other vaccines to be given first. You need to remember again, that the vaccine can still be given if the child is mildly ill; vaccine administration should be postponed only if the child has a high fever. Please discuss the child's immunization schedule further with the nearest pediatrician if you are still in doubt.
Hopefully this information helps you.
