A prime argument often used for the justification and support of today’s highly aggressive mandatory vaccination programs in the U.S. and around the world is the alleged success of the polio vaccine. Wild type polio was declared eradicated in the US in 1979 and in the western hemisphere in 1994.1
But despite widespread annual polio vaccine campaigns targeting Asia, Africa, and the Middle East, the wild type poliovirus is still circulating in Pakistan, Afghanistan, and possibly Nigeria (no new cases have been reported there for about a year).
The Global Polio Eradication Initiative has slated 2018 as the year polio would be eradicated from the Earth, but the virus is proving to be harder to outwit than officials would have you believe.
Not only are there three strains of wild poliovirus still circulating in the world, but mutated vaccine-strain polio viruses also circulate.2 A large part of the problem is the polio vaccine itself, specifically the live oral polio vaccine (OPV).
In Ukraine, two children were recently paralyzed by vaccine-derived poliovirus type 1, which came from the oral vaccine and has mutated into a more virulent form that can paralyze. The World Health Organization (WHO) noted:3

“The risk of further spread of this strain within the country is deemed to be high.”

Not only can the oral polio vaccine cause vaccine-strain polio in the vaccinated individual and others in the community, but it also may lead to a person shedding the virus in their body fluids for decades.
