Rotary World Polio Day
October 24, 2019
Countdown to History! With your help, we can end polio for good!
Rotary has been working to eradicate polio for over 30 years, and our goal of ridding the earth of this disease is in sight. We started in 1979 with vaccinations for 6 million children in the Philippines. Today, Afghanistan, Nigeria, and Pakistan are the only countries where polio remains endemic. The best way to keep the United States polio-free is to maintain high immunity (protection) in the U.S. population against polio through vaccination.
