Polio Video at Club Meeting

 
At our regular Thursday meeting, the club viewed the recent polio video that was produced in our own District, 5440. This video shows the effects that show up many, many years after a person has contracted the polio virus. Known as post polio syndrome, it can have debilitating effects on people as they age. It is extremely important that we never let our guard down in the effort to eradicate polio, especially knowing that many people in our country are no longer vaccinating their children leaving them susceptible to this virus.
