Israel takes polio vaccine push nationwide

Israel has expanded its polio vaccination campaign to target children aged 9 and under across the country. The initiative initially focused on the south of the country where polio was found in sewage. Having vaccinated 50,000 children in the area, the campaign has gone nationwide. A further 30,000 kids were immunized on the first day of the countrywide effort. News
