Mary Koslap‐Petraco, DNP, PNPPC‐BC, CPNP, FAANP: Another vaccine that we’re really promoting the change this year is for IPV or inactivated polio vaccine. All children should have at least 4 doses. If all of those 4 doses have been administered before the fourth birthday as part of combination vaccines, it’s perfectly fine, but they do need to get a fifth dose once they are 4 years of age. And that’s because it is a killed virus vaccine, and we want to make sure we prolong the immunity against polio.
