People who are refusing to be vaccinated cannot have lived in the time of polio. My childhood was in a residential area of about 200 families and three children had polio. To see a child's life afflicted with the polio virus unable to use their arms or legs with symptoms similar to cerebral palsy, is incredibly sad and tragic for the whole family. Were it not for the polio vaccine there would be many, many thousands of children and adults so afflicted today, possibly even family members of these people now refusing to be vaccinated. Please reflect, and all help each other by getting vaccinated.
