I recently took polio vaccination for my son which is supposed to be given between 4.5 to 5 age group. We believe that the nurse gave 5-8 drops by mistake. Will this cause any problem. please advise.

Two drops of the oral vaccine is what needs to be given . The drops are not as effective, so nowadays the Injectable Polio vaccine is being given. Extra drops of the oral vaccine should not lead to any problem.
