Polio eradication mission was impossible without the continual use of oral polio vaccine and it has set forth examples of its success all over the world. But the dynamics of OPV and low immunization coverage in some parts of world due to varied reasons is still a matter of concern due to the threat of Vaccine Derived Polio Virus (VDPV) and its circulation. The near eradication of poliomyelitis in whole world has intrigued the experts to control the VDPV and know more about their mutations and rising variations. Although their number are considerably less but they cannot be ignored and so there is a dire need to strategically implement the polio end game plan and rapid containment of newly found virus in any part of the world.
