According to the program, to stop transmission of wild Poliomyelitis virus, a full primary cycle should be vaccinated at least 95% of children in the second year of life. According to the Polish Vaccination Calendar of March 27, 2007 and the recommendations of the Polish Poliomyelitis Eradication Certification Committee, in order to eliminate the incidence of vaccinations, IPV vaccine was introduced for all infants as the first doses of pupation. Schedule of administration of vaccines according to the current calendar of preventive vaccinations for 2009:

  • 3-4 months of age – the first dose of IPV vaccine administered intramuscularly, or subcutaneously (along with the second dose of diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis vaccine – DTP and vaccines against Haemophilus influenzae type B – Hib)
  • 5-6 months – the second dose of IPV vaccine (along with the third dose of DTP and Hib)
  • 16-18 months – the third dose of IPV (along with the fourth dose of DTP and Hib)
  • 6 year old – the first booster dose of the oral OPV vaccine (along with the first booster dose of DTP)
