We are moving to Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia, in August. We will be there for 2 1/2 years. My 5-year-old DS was vaxed up to one year, but my 3-year-old DD is completely unvaxed. There have been a couple of cases of polio in Ethiopia in recent years (via Sudan). If you were me, would you vax your child for polio? I am really torn.
I know the chance of DD getting a severe case of polio is miniscule, and i don't even know if the polio vaccine really works or not (there is conflicting info). But there is a fear in me. I keep thinking that if she got paralyzed I would never be able to forgive myself. :(
