    More polio cases now caused by vaccine than by wild virus - AP News


    not "anti-vaxers"
    BTW Polio in Amish country hasn't wiped them out.. even without vaccines
    Should have known

    Since the vaccine effectively eradicated the virus that damaged/destroyed millions of lives, stands to reason the usual adverse reaction percentage would outnumber those catching it.

    The "logic" of this argument sounds a LOT like: "There are evil/bad gun owners; therefore, all gun owners are evil/bad".

    As I pointed out previously, I grew up around polio victims. If it gets to needing a booster I'll be right in line.

    OK, I wanted to make sure I had my thinking right before responding and I did. It really depends on where you are and the prevalent type of vaccine in that area. Most of the world is now using an inactive strain in the traditional vaccine and those that do are seeing the virus pretty much gone. The areas still using the oral vaccine with the live strain are the ones that are seeing the resurgence due to vaccine originated cases.

    I am thinking I wouldn’t bat an eye at getting the inactive vaccine. I definitely would not take the oral/active vaccine.
