Hi doctor, I have a 5 months old baby girl. She was given opv as ipv was not available along with pentavac. Can we get her vaccinated with ipv alone now ,once the dosages are available or is it compulsory to be given in combination with other vaccination

It is still prudent to complete atleast 2 doses of IPV as per IAP recomendations.
There is no compulsion to give both IPV & OPV together. In fact opv is not administered on the day when ipv is given.
Next Steps
get IPV 2 doses ASAP 2 Months apart
Health Tips
don't miss pulse opv doses if any.

I would advice to get ipv vaccine done during the next vaccination as per schedule. No need for additional ipv outside of vaccination schedule. Also get ipv
administered whenever local oral polio programme occurs.
