Detailed Answer:

Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.

There will be no harm to the child if the child gets 2 polio shots at the same time unless the child is allergic to the components of the polio shots which will be known by a positive past history.

And it doesn't matter if the received one is a boy or girl.

Hope I have answered your query, if you have any clarification please let me know.
