Hi all-

Do any no-vaccinating parents have concerns about polio and swimming?  Doctors seems to think polio is a non-issue today in the US, but coming from a family with older family members who had polio as children, I do worry that this virus could make a comeback.   This might be the only vaccine we do.  Does anyone else have the same concern? I hardly ever hear this vaccine discussed. Thanks!

I only chose two vaccines and polio was one of them so I do not worry so much. But I wonder if others do.

there are NO connections between swimming and polio!!! it is an unfounded rumor


you should repost in the vaccine section for more information on the causes and real risks - you will find more support there as well

No I do not worry about polio and swimming or polio at all for that matter.
