History of vaccination
As the world looks toward immunizations to stop the COVID19 pandemic, learn about the history of vaccination, including Rotary's fight to end polio.
Vaccines have prevented about 10 million deaths from disease since 1963, researchers estimate. The oral polio vaccine has helped bring cases of wild polio down 99.9 percent since 1988, with the virus remaining endemic in only two countries today. And now, as COVID-19 vaccines are being distributed around the world, the experience and knowledge that Rotary and its partners in the Global Polio Eradication Initiative have gained are helping protect communities from the pandemic.  Read more at
Rotary responds to COVID-19
Tapping into decades of experience in bringing polio to the brink of eradication, Rotary members worldwide are helping health authorities communicate lifesaving information about COVID-19 and vaccination, combatting misinformation, supporting fair and equal access to vaccines, and curbing the spread of the virus by donating protective gear and other supplies to clinics and hospitals that are under strain.
5 ways you can take action on COVID-19 vaccination efforts
Rotary and its partners at the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) recently announced that it is ready to support vaccine introduction and delivery. The group is also committed to equitable distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine and lending its support to ensure that all communities have equal access to vaccines. More information and resources will soon be available for clubs and districts.
