Pakistan is an endemic country in 2014 most of the polio cases were studied. The new strategies were built for success in 2015 to eradicate the polio from the country. One of the strategies was to use only bivalent oral polio vaccine for routine immunization because the bivalent is most efficient as compared to trivalent oral polio vaccine. The study was held at district Abbottabad in the last month of 2015 for polio vaccination. However, in district Abbottabad there is no case of polio since 2001 but the refusal cases still exists. The total recorded refusal cases were 51 which were covered up to 47. The total target for administering the polio vaccine in this district was 216508 out of which 94 percent of administration succeeded. Also in starting month of 2016, the IPV immunization also started for the children of 14 to 15 weeks old. A single dose of IPV is administered to the children.
