The Israeli Ministry of Health issued a statement on polio urging parents to vaccinate their children.
“For the first time in a decade, there has been an outbreak of polio in Israel. For the first time in 35 years, there is a clinical case of poliomyelitis (paralysis) as a result of infection. There is evidence that poliomyelitis has already been detected in various parts of the country,” the Ministry of Health said in a statement.
The Israeli Ministry of Health emphasized that the only way to defeat poliomyelitis is vaccination.
“If your children were born between 2005 and 2013, it's time to complete your polio vaccination and protect them,” the ministry said.
