Live polio vaccine (Sabin attenuated strain) contains antigens to all three types of poliovirus amp;& is generally given in three doses at intervals of not less than one month. The vaccine virus provokes production of IgM, IgA and IgG serum antibodies & also secretory IgA in the gut. The Sabin polio vaccine is believed to be among the safest vaccines in current use.
