OPV Vaccine
My daughter is 10 months old and we are giving her regular vaccines according to the guidelines, which also include OPV. We missed the current government vaccination on jan and Feb. Is it okay to skip ? or should we get it administered from private hospital. Please advice.

The extra doses of polio called as supplemental doses confer a community benefit rather than individual benefit... It works when administered on the same day... No use giving it now... Take it without fail from next year... Don't worry for now...
