Inclusion of Injectible Polio Vaccine in UIP

The Government of India has given in-principle approval for inclusion of three new vaccines in Universal Immunization Programme (UIP) which also includes Injectable Polio Vaccine (IPV) in addition to Rubella vaccine and Rotavirus vaccine. The Centre has not been delaying the introduction of injectable polio vaccine due to cost implications. In fact recently on 12 July 2014, National Technical Advisory Group on Immunization (NTAGI) recommended IPV as an additional dose along with 3rd dose of Diphtheria, Pertussis and Tetanus (DPT) in the country.
