hi everyone,

when your younger do you get the polo injection?

when i was 14 i missed my injection (diptheora, tetnis n polo) was a 3 n 1 jag.

maybe u get it also when your really young and cant remember. well i hope so.

went to docs and i cant get my polo now, its too late! so now 20 years old, if i become pregnant will this affect my baby??

i think you get one when you are little the one later in life is just a buster. I dont know about it being ok though. i think that you can get a buster shot. i know they have shots over here for that.

Don't worry - your doc should have explained everything when you went to ask about it.

Polio immunisation is give in the UK when you are very young - initially as part of a five in one vaccine at 2,3 and 4 months, a further dose at 4yrs and a booster at 13-18. If you have had the first ones the booster probably isn't crucial. Either way there is hardly any polio in the community - its never seen in the UK now. The vaccination scheme has wiped it out so there is very little risk to anyone, whether they have been immunised or not.

In terms of your (future) baby there is almost no risk at all with you not having been vaccinated, as long as the wee one gets their jags as planned from 2 months on.

Sorry for the essay - I hope that helps put your mind at ease!

Good luck........
