Polio Immunization

Alternate Names : Polio Vaccination

Polio Immunization | Preparation & Expectations | Home Care and Complications

What happens right after the procedure?

Most children who get the shots will not get polio. Once everyone in the world has been vaccinated, polio will disappear. No one will need the polio vaccine. Until that happens, children need to be vaccinated.

After a child has a shot they may feel some soreness and muscle tenderness where the shot was given.
