...against poliomyelitis

The vaccine is safe and effective. Possible undesirable effects after vaccination are rare and usually mild.

In some cases mild and brief pain, redness and/or swelling may occur at the site of injection. To ease the pain, apply ice or alcohol to the aching site.

Rarely, one or a combination of other undesirable effects may occur, such as tiredness, fatigue, headache, mild fever. These effects usually pass in one or two days.

Vaccine components may cause allergic reactions.

In case of severe allergy you should immediately seek medical treatment.
