I agree with my colleagues. You can wait and get IPV when available. If you live in South Bangalore, you can get it at my clinic "Growing Up Children's Clinic " @ Koramangala. Currently we have stock. You can book an appointment on Practo.

Dear friend ,your query is genuine .Its true that IPV is superior to OPV .But understand that OPV provides good enough immunity to the extent that we have reached a stage of eradication of polio from India with it's use. Get next doses whenever IPV is available. Till then relax n follow OPV as per schedule .
