Why Should You Get Immunized?
Michael McGovern, Chair of the International Polio Plus Committee, reflects on the importance of getting immunized. “Polio cases, more than anything else, have really shown us the importance of immunizations. In the late 1950s, when we had the first Polio vaccine, it became clear that this is the only way to eliminate Polio and create immunity,” he says.
