The 'Sound' of Polio Then, the Need for Vaccines Now
Elaine grew up in Ontario, and she had a cousin who had polio. She can still hear the sound of "that iron lung". When he came out of the hospital, he stayed in the living room of his house. Elaine remembers seeing the breathing pump rise and fall, with his little head sticking out of what seemed like a big black machine. When she hears people today talk about how bad vaccines are, she disagrees completely, an image of polio still stuck in her head. Thanks for sharing, Elaine.
