POLIO UPDATE

Polio Information 20 April 2020

VACCINES WORK

·       Vaccines save lives, and the effort to #endpolio is proof that #VaccinesWork. This coming week is the start of World Immunization Week, and it’s an opportunity for the world to reflect on the work being done to protect children from vaccine-preventable diseases like polio, measles, and tuberculosis. EndPolio.org

 

·       Through the global fight to #endpolio, @RotaryInternational and its partners have protected more than 2.5 billion children from polio. Because of their work and the efforts of tens of thousands of health workers, polio will one day soon be a distant memory endpol.io/5ppways #VaccinesWork

 

·       In countries where polio is a threat, children’s pinky fingers are marked with purple ink after they’re immunized. This helps health workers know which children are protected. #VaccinesWork #endpolio EndPolio.org
