Polio is very well understood and the vaccines have made a tremendous positive impact. I understand people being hesitant about the COVID vaccine… But I wish they were a bit more humble when it comes to polio. Polio is brutal and the vaccine undeniably works. The risks to society from the vaccine are objectively orders of magnitude smaller than the benefits. Humans, please, vaccinate your kids against polio.

(1),(2),(4) do appear to report true facts, but I don’t think they merit being hesitant about the vaccine. Source (3) is just unhinged.

I don’t know. Nobody was vaccinated for polio when I grew up. Some antivaxers I work with( who have phd’s BTW so aren’t dumb) are pretty convinced the vaccines are not as effective as it was made out. And that it was more to do with pollution or hygiene. or something like that.

I personally know 1 person who got polio as a baby and now walks with a limp and has a messed up leg. She was born in Shanghai where water quality is terrible. So hygiene might have been a issue.

Let’s assume you are correct though, and the vaccine works. People actually do die of vaccines. Usually a allergic response or get an infection. Its rare, but right now probably not as rare as Polio.

Because the rate is so low and most cases of Polio are just flu like with no problems,

I dont think its wise to recommend the Polio vaccines to all humans.

And because I’ve witnessed all the shenanigans with the covid vaccine I have lost all faith in vaccines and will no longer vaccinate my children at all tbh.
