Excellent news! I worked as a volunteer intern at FDA/NIH in the 1990s on the vaccine for wild polio. A long, sustained and tireless campaign. It may have been just a drop in the bucket, but so satisfying to know we made a difference to so many thousands.

To all the anti-vaxxers: this is a triumph. There is no cure for polio but a vaccine has eradicated it and is keeping a lid on many other infectious diseases. FACTS matter!

The vaccination teams, including polio survivors, showed incredible courage and dedication in the face of hostile and violent opposition to the vaccination campaign. I applaud them all! Absolute heroes.
