Polio update August 18, 2013

Today, August 8, 2013, approximately 30,000 children were immunized across Israel, with a live attenuated vaccine against the polio virus.

This is a promising start that exceeds the system's expectations, and we hope that these numbers will increase. Some Infant Welfare Stations in Israel experienced crowds.

To date, in stool samples that were tested, about 42 carriers of the wild polio virus were identified, this number represents about 4.4% of the total samples that were collected, and therefore indicates a significant number of carriers.
