Polio case confirmed in Rockland County, 1st in U.S. since 2013

Summary by Ground News
Officials say the Rockland County resident is an unvaccinated adult. It appears the person had a vaccine-derived strain of the virus. In 1979, polio was declared eliminated in the U.S., meaning there was no longer routine spread. Rarely, travelers with polio have brought infections into the United States.
