  1. Hello Dear,

    Thank you for writing to us at MediMetry.
    Oral polio vaccine(OPV) at is recommended at 9 months of age. Now injectable polio vaccine (IPV) is given routinely during primary series at 1.5 mo, 2.5 mo and 3.5 mo and OPV is not given that time. This scheduling of IPV first and OPV later, reduces risk of OPV related polio (VDPP,VAPP). Continuing OPV is important because to keep wild polio disease at check. So I will recommend to get OPV.
    Hope this answers your query. Feel free to write back with follow-up questions.
