Abstract

The antibody titers of 41 premature infants receiving inactivated poliovirus vaccine at 2 months of age (control group) were compared with titers of 39 infants receiving an additional dose at 5 to 10 days of age (study group). At 1 month of age 97.4% of the study group but only 70.8% of the control group had protective antibodies against poliovirus 3 (p <0.001). (J PEDIATR 1995;127:128-30).
