Purple ink on the pinkie finger tells both volunteers and the child’s neighborhood that one more person is safe from the horror of polio.

It is more than a way to identify who has been immunized. It is a symbol of defiance against a crippling disease and a symbol of hope for a polio-free world. No one is safe until all are safe. End Polio Now. Polio has been reduced by 99%. We are closer than ever to ending this crippling disease forever. For as little as 60 cents, a child can be vaccinated against polio for life.


WORLD POLIO DAY Awareness Event

Tuesday, October 24, 2017 - 4 pm to 6 pm

Madison State Capitol Steps

Rotary District 6250 will host an event at the Madison Capitol from 4 pm to 6 pm. We will be meeting at the State Street side of the Capitol to create awareness of Rotary’s impact on the eradication of Polio. 

Rotary members in Wisconsin are among millions reaching out on World Polio Day to raise awareness, funds, and support to end polio – a vaccine-preventable disease that still threatens children in parts of the world today.
