Description

Dr. Paul Offit is a co-inventor of the rotavirus RotaTeq vaccine, along with Fred Clark and Stanley Plotkin. The rotavirus vaccine is credited with saving hundreds, if not thousands, of children's lives worldwide every day. He's the author of a number of books that contribute enormously to public health education, especially related to vaccines. Today we're focusing on polio and CDC's [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's] role overall with polio, how polio affected CDC, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and how CDC affected polio.
