    Background: After 407 people caught poliomyelitis in Buenos Aires, the Government Public Health Department organised a full-scale vaccination campaign against the disease.

    The Department calculates that by the end of it every child between 2 months and 14 years, and every woman more than five months pregnant will have been vaccinated in Buenos Aires. The work is being done in hospital,s railway stations, and house-to-house, to see that everyone is covered.

    Campaigns which cover the entire susceptible population in this way have considerably reduced the world incidence of polio in the last decade. The vaccine is given orally, and can be quickly and easily given to small children, who are most vulnerable to the disease.
