This is a neat video about saving lives with vaccines.  Giving children a couple of imagedrops or a shot in the arm can save a child’s life.  Measles vaccines only cost 18 cents each. 

He addresses polio right now and how we are close to solving the problem.  Smallpox is the only disease that has been eradicated.  He uses India as an example on where vaccines are being distributed to children for polio.  He states we need to keep vaccinating otherwise the disease will slowly make its way back.
