A CALL TO OUR COMMUNITY TO GET VACCINATED NOW
Poliovirus continues to circulate in Jewish communities around the world, with recent cases of paralytic polio in unvaccinated individuals in Israel and New York. Polio can cause paralysis or death and there is no cure, but it can be prevented by vaccination.
Vaccinate before you travel or visit relatives this Pesach to stop the disease from spreading. It is vital that you and your children are up to date with your polio and other childhood vaccines to protect yourselves, your family and our whole Jewish community. Those who are not fully vaccinated are at increased risk.
Contact your GP or local health centre to get vaccinated before Pesach or for advice on which vaccines you or your children may have missed.
Wishing all families a healthy, happy and kosher Pesach.
