Hello, thanks for the question.
OPV is a type of poly vaccine that aims to avoid polio or poliomyelitiss diseases that cause nerve disorders. The virus lives in the throat and intestinal tract that can be spread through contact with fluids or stools and can cause paralysis of body organs, even death.OPV is given orally or by mouth, while other types of polio vaccine (IPV) are given through blood vessels. Regarding the OPV immunization schedule, it should be given from birth / baby to obtain optimal results. After that, the vaccine will be given again at the age of 2 months, 3 months and 4 months. Then, one more dose of the polyoboosterone vaccine will be given when the child is 18 years old. If the administration of polio vaccine to infants or children is delayed, it can be continued until the full dose. Remember, the polio vaccine does not need to be repeated from the beginning. If the child has not been vaccinated, it is usually given immediately when he remembers, and should immediately come to the health service center or to a pediatrician to consult with the vaccine so that the doctor can explain the vaccine and can be adjusted to the child's age. After giving the polio vaccine, children will usually experience complaints of pain or fever in response to the body of the vaccine and the mother does not need to worry, you should consult with your doctor about giving pain relievers or fever. In addition, OPV can also trigger allergic reactions in some children. After administering the vaccine, it is recommended to eat healthy, nutritious food, increase fluid intake, and get adequate rest.
Thus, hopefully it helps.
