Kids Roll Up Sleeves for Polio Vaccination Drive

From Times Wire Reports

Parents and children lined up across Indonesia in a polio vaccination drive targeting 24 million youngsters.

Polio has sickened 225 children since the virus reappeared in Indonesia in March for the first time in 10 years.

Health workers said some children in the mostly Muslim nation could be missed amid unfounded fears that the vaccine is unsafe or violates Islamic law.
