Has anyone seen any new reseach on this that says that babies shouldn't get it? I saw something on it and can't remember where it is. She has her 6 month check-up tomorrow and I can't remembe if she's supposed to get it this time or next. I fell kind of wierd about putting a live virus that some harmful in her body and wanted to reread the research before I go to the doctors.

Do you live in the US? At my ds 2 month appt., he received the IPV (inactive, which is the shot). We also received an info sheet that stated IPV is the recommended form of immunization in the US today because of the slight risk of contracting Polio from the OPV. It also stated the OPV is still used in some locations. The info sheet has the National Immunization Program's website listed. It is http://www.cdc.gov/nip *no dashes if they appear*
