The total number of polio cases (whole world) have come down to below thousand per year. Except few pockets of India and some other countries, polio is almost eradicated.

If you have children below 5 years of age and you are in a region where polio vaccine are given from time to time in your locality (health workers visit your home if not vaccinated) and also in hospitals, you should vaccinate your child. Support polio eradication campaign of WHO.
