    1. Good morning Dr. Sujon Paul. Today Polio vaccine is being given in our health complex. The problem is my son and I went late. They were gone @ 12pm. Now will there be any problem for my son? My son is 9 months running.

      1. No problem. It is given every year. So, don’t miss it next year.

    2. Hi. Amar babu er 3 (5/12/16) EPI dose e (Penta + OPV) deoa hoyeche. But, IPV dey nai. Upazilla Health Complex, Nandail e naki IPV supply nai. IPV na dile kono shomossha hobe ki na ba MMCH e deoa jabe ki na.

      1. Yes. As OPV is composed of live viruses, it may cause polio itself in some cases. IPV is composed of killed viruses and prevents this hazard. So, you should contact nearby Surjer Hashi Clinic or other hospitals for it. I am not sure about MMCH. For more information, you can read this article.

    3. Hi. I did not give any vaccine to my child. She is now 45 days old. Can I give her BCG now?

      1. Surely. Contact your nearby Surjer Hasi Chihnito Clinic.
