Hi thanks for your question.
Yes pulse polio vaccine
can be given to 5 months old baby, over and above the scheduled vaccine dose. The meaning of pulse is to deliver large quantity of drug to large group of people in one time and purpose of pulse polio is not to live a single baby without polio vaccine ,so that this we can eradicate the polio from this world, like small pox. There is no truth in these rumors that polio vaccine can cause hiv
/253657?iL=true" >AIDS, and how can it?(it is not possible at all, unless vaccine is contaminated with HIV).No such case is reported in literature. No case has been reported that more than 15 doses of polio vaccine have caused nerve
disease, However if the polio vaccine is not properly prepared (which never happens) it can cause polio. The WHO has reported that chances of catching polio are highest in Nigeria and the chances are 1 in 1.3 million.
Hope this answers your question
