Infectious disease doctor Elena Meskina, in an interview with Evening Moscow, said that she is in a special risk group for polio virus.
Therefore, according to the specialist, children under five years of age are more susceptible to the disease, as well as those babies who have less than five injections of the disease.
– When you receive a full course of vaccination – 5-6 injections, lifelong immunity is provided. We do not have a threat of spreading the disease, since we are vaccinated”, emphasized Meskina.
In addition, “VM” learned how dangerous polio is and how to treat it.
On June 22, the British authorities declared a state of emergency following the discovery of traces of polio in the water. Each year between one and three cases of vaccine-associated poliovirus are detected in the country. However, the virus isolates found this time are genetically related to each other, which has never been detected before.
