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.
