Q: My seven months old son has already been administered 3 doses of injectible polio vaccination (IPV). Is it necessary to give oral polio vaccination (OPV)?

A:If you have already administered injectable polio vaccine (IPV) to your child then there is no need to give him additional dose of oral polio vaccine (OPV).
