More reaction today, after our report yesterday about a possible change in
the way children are vaccinated from polio.
Decades after the polio epidemic ended, six-year-old David Salamone
contracted the paralyzing disease. Ironically, it was polio vaccine given
orally that CAUSED his disease.
It's cases like this one driving the crusade to end the use of the oral
vaccine currently reccomended by the government.
The oral form contains a live virus that can cause polio in as many as ten
children each year.
A C-D-C advisory panel has taken the first step, in recommending a KILLED
virus that would not infect any children.
IN Q=It makes
((DR. DIXIE SNIDER/CDC:IT MAKES AVAILABLE SAFER OPTIONS THAN THE USE OF ORAL
POLIO VACCINE EXCLUSIVELY.))
*****CONNIE AUDIO ON CART****
The decision is a compromise-- recommending injections at the killed
vaccine when children are at highest risk for infection with a live virus.
Then, at one year and four years, a live ORAL vaccination.
But using the killed vaccine involves getting a shot-- and critics argue
that may keep some parents from having their children vaccinated at all.
IN Q=This decision
((GESGE CARLO/INSTITUE FOR SCIENCE & PUBLIC POLICY: THIS DECISION WE BELIEVE
WILL PUT 200-800 THOUSAND YOUNG CHILDREN AT RISK OF AQUIRING LIFE THREATENING

parents will have a choice, in receiving a live or a killed vaccine.
