Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

hello priyanka...
Atleast u shud give . OPV (Oral Polio Vaccine) 5 doses-0 dose at birth, three primary doses at 6,10 and 14 weeks and one booster dose at 16-24 months of age...

Priyanka.. . I doubt if there as a pulse polio vaccine in January. they were all postponed to April 2nd n 30th.
There are 2 vaccines of polio every year..doze 1 n 2.
However keep giving them till age of 5, no matter they were administered earlier along with ur vaccine chart.
