Polio drops
Unable to find a place in Gurgaon where polio drops are administered. We are following regular immunisation including DPT. Do we need to participate in govt polio drop programs?

Hello there. In the polio immunisation programme of the govt, the people usually come door to door and administer the vaccine to children below 5 years. Apart from that, they also arrange camps in nearby government schools. You can definitely find the vaccine at all government hospitals near you. Additionally now the government has introduced IPV that is injectable polio vaccine which also needs to be taken as a part of the immunisation schedule. Consult a government hospital or any paediatrician near you. Regards
