Ok... So we've established the oral polio vaccine can actually cause the same issue it is meant to prevent, paralysis, and can create a vaccine-derived circulating outbreak.The oral vaccine contains live, weakened virus that prevents the gut of the vaccinated child against all the types of wild poliovirus, thus preventing paralysis. However, in rare cases, the weakened virus is also known to cause paralysis. It is estimated that the vaccine has caused paralysis in around 300 million children who received their first dose of immunization.
In addition, the virus from the oral vaccine is excreted over a period of six to eight weeks The excreted virus replicates in the environment and during the process, sometimes gets genetically mutated. These mutated versions are called circulating vaccine-derived polioviruses, or cVDPV, and can cause paralysis. Under-immunized children are at a great risk of catching the virus circulating in the contaminated water and food. There are three types of cVDPVs identified so far.
So, the solution is .....
Right! Focus on the underimmunized and not the vaccine that is actually causing the outbreak.:duh. Another article blames the "anti- vaccine" for low immunization rates and seems to forget that the entire article is about the vaccine causing the outbreak.WHO, therefore, has stressed on the importance of maintaining high immunization rates within the countries to stop such deadly outbreak of the polio virus.
