This is what I found online (scroll about halfway down). I hope that helps!

Edited to copy and paste:

Polio vaccine protects against polio, a virus that can cause paralysis and death. There are two kinds of polio vaccines: the inactivated polio virus (IPV), which is the shot recommended in the United States today, and a live, oral polio virus (OPV). OPV causes polio in a few people and experts believe that using OPV is no longer worth the slight risk, except in limited cases. IPV does not cause polio.

When to get it: Shot is usually given at 2 months, 4 months, 6-18 months, and at 4-6 years.

Possible side effects: Soreness where the shot is given.
