Thanks for your query.

It is not harmful if polio drops were given twice in a week to your daughter.

Pulse polio is recommended to be given to every child below 5 years of age even if they are have received their regular dose. Thereby children are given doses a number of times in a year and has not been reported to cause any harm. So be rest assured that your daughter will not be harmed.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction. Please feel free to revert back in case you need any clarification.

Wishing your daughter all the best.
