For this episode, we are covering the poliovirus. Through a historical reenactment of the 1950s, we describe what it was like to be in fear and be infected with this virus. Our hopes from this episode are to show the general public how the development of vaccines has and can protect us from getting sick. Most of the world no longer fears the poliovirus thanks to the polio vaccine . . . Thank you, scientists!
