I had to capture this for future reference. This is astoundingly sad.
At its peak (1952), polio killed 3,145 Americans. After a vaccine became available in 1955, all 50 states passed laws requiring polio vaccination before kids can enter public schools.— Montana FTW! (@dmahugh) November 14, 2021
COVID killed 345,000 Americans in 2020, and has killed 416,000 more so far in 2021.
