More About
Polio

Polio mainly affects children under the age of five, but it can also occur in adults. There are three types of poliovirus: type 1, type 2, and type 3. All three types can cause paralysis, but type 1 is the most common and most severe.

There is no cure for polio, but it can be prevented through vaccination. The polio vaccine is a safe and effective way to protect against the disease. It is given as a series of injections, usually in the arm or leg. Inactivated polio vaccine (IPV) is the most common type of vaccine used globally and in the UK it has been used for routine vaccinations since 2004. It is given as a shot and contains inactivated (dead) poliovirus. 

Polio was once a global health threat, with cases reported in over 125 countries. However, thanks to widespread vaccination efforts, polio has been eliminated from most of the world. In 1988, the World Health Organization (WHO) launched the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, which aims to completely eliminate the disease.
