Is it necessary to get my daughter vaccinated during every pulse polio camp?
Q: My one year old daughter is getting OPV polio vaccination. Is it necessary to get her vaccinated during every pulse polio camp?
A:Individual OPV vaccination is for that individual. Pulse polio immunization is for the good of community (to eradicate polio) so that all children below five years receive OPV and the virus is not left with a host to circulate in. It is ideal to provide both types of immunization so that polio is eradicated. You could view pulse polio as the add on to your routine polio immunization.
