I missed the pulse polio drops campaign for my daughter 3 years old. I really wanted to know, is there any difference between these drops and the ones we give through the regular immunization schedule. We spend thousands to get the immunizations done. Considering this, does it become mandatory to get the drops in government campaigns done? Or, is it just customary?
Pulse polio dose is an extra dose other than the routine immunization. This dose (pulse polio) is given on specified dates in a calendar year through government agencies. This campaign aims towards eradication of polio. If your daughter missed this dose, you cannot give it now until further dates are declared. It is not customary. Rather, it is the responsibility of the citizen to give these extra doses to kids under 5 years anywhere in the country on the given dates. By doing so, we are helping our country and the world eradicate polio.
