Fractional Dose of Inactivated Polio Vaccine-fIPV

Fractional Dose of Inactivated Polio Vaccine-fIPV: The Government of Nepal is preparing to add Fractional-Dose Inactivated Poliovirus Vaccine (fIPV) very soon.  A schedule of fractional intradermal doses administered at 6 and 14 weeks ensures early and appropriately-timed protection. The 2 fractional doses should be separated by a minimum interval of 4 weeks. 2 fractional doses of IPV, given intradermally at 6 and 14 weeks provide higher seroconversion rates than a single full dose (intramuscular) given at 14 weeks.3 FIPV FCHV Leaflet 2018 Final page 001
