Hello …, my child is 5 months old and the drop of polio immunization has been completed, my midwife gave me a real time when my child was 9 months old for measles immunization, but why was IPVny missed (not scheduled)? not IPV immunization?
IPV or Inactivated Polio Vaccine is a polio vaccine that comes from a virus that is no longer active and is given by injection. This vaccine is given to provide immunity against the polio virus which has the potential to cause disability or even death.
The vaccine itself is an antigenic substance (stimulates an antibody response / immune system) which is used to produce immunity in a disease, which in this case is to prevent polio virus infection.
Giving IPV is not necessary if your child has received the OPV (Oral Polio Vaccine) so your child does not need to be given the IPV vaccine if your child has completed the OPV vaccination. If you have any doubts or concerns about your child's health condition, you can consult directly with the pediatrician or medical personnel who treats your child so that you can get detailed information about this directly.
