The New York patient reportedly contracted a form of polio that can be traced back to the live, but weakened, poliovirus used in the oral polio vaccine. This version of the vaccine has not been used in the U.S. since 2000. Health officials said the virus affecting the male patient, who has muscle weakness and paralysis, likely originated somewhere overseas, where oral vaccines are still administered.

The article misleadingly states that vaccines introduce a harmless version of a pathogen to your body to train your immune system to fight off the real germ if you ever encounter it.

This is the narrative we’ve been told ad nauseum, yet people are damaged and killed by vaccines daily.

For a great read on the biological mechanisms of vaccine injury please read part 1 and part 2.  This reality is similar to the reality of chronic Lyme/MSIDS. It just isn’t discussed, believed, or acted upon by mainstream medicine.  And similarly, according to mainstream medicine, both topics (Lyme/MSIDS & vaccines) state everything is rare, even when it isn’t.

Regarding polio, many believe routine vaccination may have replaced one disease with another and that acute flaccid myelitis (AFM) outbreaks – a polio-like disease- have been recorded on a biennial basis.

For decades, it’s been known that under certain conditions a phenomenon referred to as “provocation polio” can occur after injections, including injections of vaccines. Yet this issue is being largely, if not entirely, ignored in today’s discussions about AFM.

And while we all envision frightening posters of kids in iron lungs, the very contagious enterovirus infection usually causes mild flu-like symptoms or no symptoms at all, and most people recover from polio without lasting health problems (nonparalytic polio).

While the global poliovirus eradication effort appears to have been successful, the consequences of routine use of OPV are not fully known. In 2009, the World Health Organization warned that live polio vaccine may be responsible for a rise in vaccine strain polio termed Vaccine Derived Polio Disease (VDPD).

Not only has live vaccine strain poliovirus been found to cause paralytic disease in some cases, but evidence also shows that mutated vaccine-derived viruses are responsible for some outbreaks.15,16 As reported by NPR in 2017:

“For the first time, the number of children paralyzed by mutant strains of the polio vaccine are greater than the number of children paralyzed by polio itself. So far in 2017, there have been only six cases of ‘wild’ polio reported anywhere in the world …  Source

We are always given part of the truth – not the whole enchilada. Vaccines have always come with risks and always will.  
The polio case might be a foreshadowing of smallpox in the future.
