In brief: Yes.

Either the live oral or the inactivated injectable vaccine is given to children in every country that has enough order in it to assure delivery of vaccine to where it is needed.

In brief: Yes, Polio vaccines

Are used where possible.
Polio is endemic in pakistan, nigeria & afghanistan. Polio cases still occur in ethiopia, israel, kenya & somalia. Political unrest & rejection of the vaccine for religious reasons has slowed vaccination progress. Vaccinators in pakistan & nigeria have been murdered. These issues can make delivery difficult.
