The polio vaccination campaign begins on February 19 and includes children from the age of one to five years. Therefore, in today’s article, we will provide several important tips for mothers so that they can provide vaccinations to their children without any problems.

Polio vaccinations

  • You must refrain from breastfeeding the child on the day of vaccination for half an hour to 45 minutes before and after vaccination.
  • A child cannot receive the polio vaccination if he has undergone both types of rotavirus vaccination if a full 15 days have not passed. 
  • It is not necessary to wait for 15 days between receiving the polio vaccination and other vaccinations provided by health care, such as the bacterial influenza vaccination, seasonal influenza, German measles, hepatitis A and B, meningitis, measles, mumps, and pneumococcal disease. 
  • A child cannot receive the polio vaccination if he or she has been taking medications that include oral cortisone, such as Zylon, Predsol, Fenadone, Apidon, for two weeks or more.
  • A child who uses nasal and chest sprays that include cortisone can get the vaccine.
  • A child suffering from immunodeficiency is prohibited from receiving the polio vaccination.
  • The vaccine can be obtained for children with allergic rhinitis, chest allergies, or allergies to dairy and wheat.
  • If the child suffers from a slightly high temperature or cold, he can receive the vaccination.
