Newborn babies should be given polio drops in addition to the regular immunization which is carried out at 6 weeks, 10 weeks and 14 weeks after your child's birth. 

To eradicate the Poliovirus from India, the government has introduced the immunization day programme every year. Do not compromise with your child's health and take him/her for polio drops vaccination camp near your place.

How Does the Polio Virus Affect Children?

Polio causes nerve or tissue damage, which leads to paralysis, troubles in breathing and even death in some cases. The weakness in the muscles causes an inability to move from one place to another. Legs are the first body parts which get affected by polio but neck, head and diaphragm are also infected. Polio is spread through infected fecal matter entering the mouth or even through contaminated water. Read: Know Diarrhea causes, symptoms in kids

 

Types Of Polio Vaccines

  • Paralytic Polio: This form of polio is rare but serious but with time it gets worsened
  • This form of polio can be seen generally where the initial symptoms are confused with normal illness. People who develop symptoms from the poliovirus contract a type of polio that doesn't lead to paralysis.  Know more: Types of Polio Vaccines

 

Symptoms Of Polio

Polio is a highly infectious viral disease, which affects children under 0-5 years.

  1. Fever: If mild fever continues for more than 3 to 4 days then consult the doctor
  2. Headache: A child suffers from a headache when he has polio. This is tagged along with tiredness as well
  3. Back & Neck Pain: Pain in the neck, back, arms and neck are also signs of polio which are also accompanied by a sore throat, fatigue, weakness, and vomiting

Causes Of Polio In India

You need to be quite careful about the health safety of your child and must avoid direct contact with the infected person as poliovirus can be transmitted through direct contact or even via contaminated water and food. Poliovirus is known to mainly attack children aged younger than 5 years and even those children who aren't immunized to the disease. 

Watch this video to make you understand polio completely. 

 

Why Are Polio Pulse Immunizations Important?

Parents also need to be aware of any existing allergies in the family that might cause an infection or a reaction. 

  • Floppy and lose limbs
  • Loss of reflexes
  • Post-polio syndrome
  • Severe muscle aches and weakness
  • Experts claim that you can protect your child from various deadly diseases effectively through proper immunization schemes
  • The vaccines are made by scientists after years of research and are hence safe and effective.

 

So having your child vaccinated from time to time will help you in protecting your child from Polio
