Ipol

poliovirus vaccine, inactivated
Polio affects the central nervous system and spinal cord. It can cause muscle weakness and paralysis. Polio is a life threatening condition because it can paralyze the muscles that help you breathe. The polio vaccine is used to help prevent these diseases in children and adults. This vaccine works by exposing you to a small dose of the virus, which causes the body to develop immunity to the disease. This vaccine will not treat an active infection that has already developed in the body. Polio vaccine is for use in adults and children who are at least 6 weeks old. Like any vaccine, the polio vaccine may not provide protection from disease in every person.
