|In this latest podcast, we tackle the resurgence of Measles, vaccinations, and common anti-vaccination myths!
Note regarding our talk on the polio vaccine: Following its mass production in 1955, certain pharmaceutical companies failed to properly inactivate the Salk vaccine, leading to over 250 reported cases of paralysis. Salk’s inactivated polio vaccine was the first developed, followed by the oral polio vaccine (OPV). OPV remained in use in the US until 1999 where it was replaced with an inactivated, injectable vaccine. However, OPV is still used in other countries around the world.
