Is OPV and pulse polio drops are same?
Is OPV and pulse polio drops are same medicine? ACTUALLY my baby is 3.5months old, our child doc only gives her IPV and not OPV, this only we came to know about this. Now what to do? Though she had taken pusle polio drops three times, one at the time of birth, second and third on pulse polio campaign day. My concern is OPV and pulse are same? IF YES then why OPV has been mentioned on child vaccination card.

Both are same. Ipv or opv. Whichever u can get. Pre eradication Era opv was prefered. Now polio is put of India so Ipv is prefered. Both have same effect. It's understood. Both are equally effective. Don't worry about it.
