The Disease

Poliomyelitis is a highly infectious disease that most commonly affects children under the age of 5.

Most know it as poliovirus. The virus is spread person to person, typically through contaminated water. It can attack the nervous system, and in some instances, lead to paralysis. Although there is no cure, there is a safe and effective vaccine – one which Rotary and our partners use to immunize over 2.5 billion children worldwide.

THE FACTS

1   Polio mainly affects children under age 5.

2   There is no cure, but polio is preventable with a vaccine.

3   Only two countries remain endemic.

4   We’ve reduced cases by 99.9% since 1988.

5   Until we end polio forever, every child is at risk.

 


Tickets are priced at $5 each, 2 tickets for $10, 3 tickets for $15, 4 tickets for $20, 5 tickets for $25, 10 tickets for $50, 20 tickets for $100
