Polio, v2

A year ago, I wrote on this blog about my memories of the fear. The fear of polio. You could almost touch it, and with my grandmother in a wheelchair from her bout with it around the time of World War I, it was personal.

Today I ran into this on-line article about a woman who has been in an iron lung for 60 years.

The vaccination was such a relief to adults and children. Advice? Get your children vaccinated, because the Syrian outbreak could spread.
