Polio is a disease of the central nervous system usually spread through contaminated food and water. Many countries have eradicated Polio through vaccination although it still exists in some African and Asian countries and cases continue to occur worldwide. Boosters are recommended at 10 year intervals if travelling to an endemic country.
