Thanks for writing to us.

I understand your concern there is nothing to worry.

There are no side effects .Give plenty of fluids to your child.

In case your child is given OPV rare side effects could be diarrhea or vomiting.

In case IPV is given possible side effects are redness and swelling at injection site .It can also lead to fever which is mild and last for 24 to 48 hours.

Yes it does not matter if it is a boy or girl.

Hope I have answered your query.If you have any further question I would be glad to help.

Wishing your child good health.

God bless...
