  • Previous booster vaccination against poliomyelitis since the end of the primary vaccination series.
  • History of poliomyelitis disease.
  • History of seizures or progressive neurological disease.
  • Any confirmed or suspected immunosuppressive or immunodeficient condition, based on medical history and physical examination
