No New Polio Cases: India

This report of no new polio cases in India validates (no thinking person really needed further validation) the use of vaccines in serious life-threatening diseases. 

The world of polio as it appeared in 2011:  Countries in black still reporting cases, except perhaps India!

Medicynical Note:  In the early part of my medical career I observed the WHO’s vaccination strategy in Africa.  Small pox was eliminated as an active disease threat.  I didn’t expect another such advance in my lifetime. 

Millions of people have benefitted.
