#VaccinesWork Throwback Video: Poliovirus Eradication
This short video, shown as a #throwback social media content to drum up the World Immunization Week 2019 celebration, describes the success of vaccination in eradicating polio.
The video is told in the point-of-view of the Philippines context. The Philippines was certified polio-free since year 2000, yet the threat of this paralyzing disease still remains. As long as poliovirus transmission happens elsewhere in the world, all other children remain at risk. The video calls that all children in communities should complete their polio vaccines.
