hi Mohan Terli ! All infants without contraindications should receive 3 doses of inactivated polio vaccine (abbreviation: IPV; trade name: Ipol®), given at least 4 weeks apart, with the first dose administered at a minimum of 6 weeks of age, routinely at 2, 4, and 6-18 months of age. A fourth dose is recommended at 4-6 years of age, though this dose is not needed if the third dose was received after 4 years of age and at least 6 months after the second dose.
