Dear Dharani, Thanks for your support and response. I am referring here for the polio drops which I missed on 4th April 2017 scheduled by government. Rest till nine months measles vaccination all is given ..I have pending typhoid and hepatitis 2 is pending for 10 and 12 months. Rest all are given . Even opv and ipv are given at 6 weeks and 10 and 14 weeks and one polio drops at birth. Please suggest if there is nothing to worry on the missed polio drops

I missed the opv vaccination on 17th April 2017.. Is is necessary as private hospital and my doctor said they don't have supply of it. He is 10 months old now and has received polio vaccination n drops earlier . I'm worried how to get the missing polio drops at this month. please suggest when is the next polio day scheduled any idea. I am a single mom and I feel terrible that I missed it and the guilt is killing me :((((

In government hospital they are not vaccinating separately but when we consult the local pediatrician they told to put separately in government hospitals. Another pediatrician telling that if 1st month of IPV1 is vaccinated then it is not needed so we are confused

one of my friend is a doctor and I had a discussion on this now ...she explained tat both OPV & IPV are for polio and in tat IPV is an optional one. ..if you had OPV then you need not to have IPV.... so check if you had OPV vaccine for ur child if so you dont need to put IPV separately.... however consult wit ur pediatrician

hae guys it's a mandatory one which is listed.... if you are muc worried then ask with ur pediatrician if it can be given in next visit and seek advice from them... I have heard this is the first time tat it's was not available... have you vaccinated in private or government hospital... there may be chances for sometime of non availability in government hospital... I would suggest go to pediatrician clinic exclusively for child so tat there alwys have our listed vaccine in handy....

Hi Ashwini, If your child have recived OPV then dont worry as IPV is the same in vaccination form . Oral polio vaccine (OPV) The OPV is a live but weakened form of the virus which makes the body produce antibodies against it without developing into the disease. Given as oral drops, it protects not only the person who has taken them but also others living around him.
