The Right Time For Giving Polio Vaccine To Infants Aged 3 Months?
my child is now 3 months and 8 days old
Good afternoon, thanks for the question
The first polio immunization is given at birth (Polio-0), then given again at the age of 2, 4, 6 months (Polio-1, Polio-2, Polio-3) according to the IDAI schedule, or at 2, 3, 4 months according to government programs. The administration of oral or injection polio vaccines is usually given together with the DPT to reduce the hours of immunization visits and the effectiveness of time.
If late polio immunization is given, then do not repeat the gift from the beginning, but continue and complete it according to schedule, whatever the delay interval from the previous administration. Even though it's late given, the polio vaccine still needs to be given with immunization. Conduct further consultations with pediatricians to find out the schedule for the pursuit of polio immunization for your child.
That's all, hope you can help.
