Polio in Egypt

The Last Battle

Egypt joined the list in 2006 with the World Health Organization (WHO) and UNICEF declared that Egypt was polio-free after the last case was discovered in 2004. This was due to the extensive vaccination coverage in all the governorates of Egypt through seven doses within the schedule of routine immunizations and the additional doses through periodic national campaigns.
