CDC has a plan to respond to the Vaccine Caused Poliovirus

In Syria, there were no Polio cases, until the WHO started its vaccination program with live-weakened virus in 2012. This caused the first Polio-outbreak in Syria since 1999 !


Maybe it is time for a drug company to come up with a new vaccine to combat the current  cases of Vaccine-derived Polio Virus in Syria. The CDC is on it.

Highlights from the CDC document:

  • Among 74 cases reported as of June 17, 2018  (62%) occurred in females
  • Since the 1988 inception of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI), progress toward interruption of wild Poliovirus (WPV), transmission has occurred mostly through extensive use of oral Poliovirus vaccine
