The World Health Organization urged countries today to resort to smaller doses to ward off outbreaks of polio as there is a global shortage of the vaccine. SAGE, which advises the UN health agency on immunisation policies, called for two smaller doses of the vaccine to be injected under the skin at six and 14 weeks after birth, instead of a single, larger intermuscular dose.

The recent evidence shows that even smaller doses of vaccine under the skin instead of inside the muscle, can have the same impact of protection as before.
