IPOL POLIO VACCINE EA

Ipol is indicated for active immunisation of infants, children and adults for the prevention of poliomyelitis. Recommendations for the use of live and inactivated poliovirus vaccines are described in the national immunisation guidelines.

1. General recommendations. It is recommended that all infants, unimmunised children and adolescents not previously immunised be vaccinated routinely against paralytic poliomyelitis. Ipol should be offered to patients who have refused OPV, or in whom OPV is contraindicated.

2. Ipol is also indicated for:

the primary vaccination of immunocompromised individuals of all ages (see Precautions), and household contacts of such individuals (when vaccination is indicated);

unvaccinated or inadequately vaccinated* adults, particularly if at increased risk of exposure to live poliovirus, including:

travellers to areas or countries where poliomyelitis is epidemic or endemic;

laboratory workers handling specimens which may contain polioviruses;

healthcare workers in close contact with patients who may be excreting polioviruses.

*Such as those who had not completed a primary series of vaccination or not received a booster dose since infancy.
