Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Polio vaccination is generally done with the scheduled vaccination. If you have visited your doctor at six weeks, 10 weeks, and 14 weeks of vaccination, he must have vaccinated the child for polio as well. Still, if you feel it has not been done, visit a Paediatrician for polio immunization.
