Polio Vaccine (IPV)

  Immunizations: Polio Vaccine (IPV)

                                             What is Polio?
Polio is an infection caused by a virus that can lead to permanent paralysis.

IPV Immunization Schedule Children usually get the inactivated poliovirus vaccine IPV at ages 2 months, 4 months, 6-18 months, and 4-6 years.

Sometimes IPV is given in a combination vaccine along with other vaccines. in this case, a child migth receive a fifth dose of IPN.this is safe.

The oral poliovirus vaccine OPV is a weakened live vaccine  that is still used in many parts of the world, but hasn't been used in the United States since 2000. Using IPV eliminates the small risk of developing polio after receiving the live oral polio vaccine.

OPV doses given before April 2016 can count toward a child's U.S. polio vaccination requirements. doses given after that will not count.
