IPV can be given beginning at the age of 2 months followed by 2 more doses as well as a booster.
For babies older than 2 months, they receive a total of two doses and one booster. The first dose is followed by a second dose around 6 weeks later and a booster 12 months after that. This along with the OPV provides immunity against the Polio virus. It is important to remember that the reason the doses are less is because the total immunity is achieved by a certain age with the smaller number of doses. Additional doses are given to younger babies because they are more susceptible to illness.
So there is no need to worry. Just follow the instructions of your child's paediatrician and also make sure he receives all his vaccinations on time.
Thnx Dr Michelle Frank...one more question.. My husband is saying to go for total three doses+booster... Should I go for it would it do any harm...because they say they can't give another shot before 2 months..and another Dr says my son still should get 3 doses+ booster..so confused to take any step
It would be advisable to follow what your doctor says, as he knows your son's medical history and will be able to advise accurately on what should be done.
