In brief: Yes
But we do not use the oral vaccine anymore.
When we did, it is important to know that the mom had been previously immunized.

In brief: Yes
There have been concerns that oral polio vaccine containing live virus is inadvertently given to an immunodeficient chlld or to a child who potentially infect immunocompromised household contact.
Therefore, no oral polio vaccine is used in routine immunization in us.
