NEWS HOOKS All About Vaccines

I do not have polio, but I did get a polio vaccination. My father was in the military and our family pretty much got whatever vaccine the government required. Is that the case today? If you have experience with vaccines, either from a family’s perspective or a medical professional’s point-of-view, take note of polio’s history today and get in front of news professionals who need your sound bites, statistics and stories.

Today, Forbes reports 60 years ago yesterday, the largest clinical trial for a vaccine in history concluded successfully with a ‘safe, effective and potent’ inactivated polio vaccine.

With measles and autism in our midst, the vaccine debate is a hot one.  Get your shot out there.
