Title: Polio immunisation information (Links to English resource)
Summary: People in Australia need to be immunised against polio. A recent case in Victoria alerts us to the need for ongoing immunisation against polio. There are cases of the disease overseas, and there is a risk of it being re-established here if children and adults are not immunised.
