Before polio vaccination was ever a thing, many people died. They said that 1 out of ever 2.4 million people would die. In 1952, during the worst recorded epidemic, 3,145 people, including 1,873 children, in the United States died from polio. Now that we are able to help those with Polio, there has been no deaths.
Polio is a crippling and potentially infectious disease. It is caused by the Polio virus. This virus would spreads from person to person and could invade an infected person's brain and spinal cord, which would then lead to paralysis.
IVP produces antibodies in the blood to all 3 types of poliovirus. These antibodies prevent the spread of the virus to the central nervous system and protect against paralysis.
