I have two daughters, one is 3 years and second is 8 months old. I didn't given polio drops this time. As I am giving vaccination at time. Is it really necessary to give polio drops even after correct vaccination?

It is perfectly fine not to give polio drops if you have given IPV. However, if there is a pulse polio drop program in your area, you must give the baby those polio drops.

I understand it is about pulse polio. Yes, Irrespective of the vaccination, you should give polio vaccine at pulse polio center. It is your social responsibility to make pulse polio a success.
