240,000 doses of oral polio vaccine were delivered to Ukraine!

Message forwarded by the Ministry of Health of Ukraine

Polio is a dangerous disease that affects the nervous system and can lead to incurable paralysis and death.

Every child by age 14 should receive six doses of the polio vaccine. This is how you can form immunity to the disease. Vaccinations are given at 2, 4, 6 and 18 months, 6 and 14 years and provide lifelong protection.

Vaccinations against poliomyelitis are included in the National calendar of preventive vaccinations and are free of charge!

Vaccines in support of the National Immunization Program were delivered to Ukraine by UNICEF as humanitarian aid.
