Rapid responses are electronic comments to the editor. They enable our users to debate issues raised in articles published on bmj.com. A rapid response is first posted online. If you need the URL (web address) of an individual response, simply click on the response headline and copy the URL from the browser window. A proportion of responses will, after editing, be published online and in the print journal as letters, which are indexed in PubMed. Rapid responses are not indexed in PubMed and they are not journal articles. The BMJ reserves the right to remove responses which are being wilfully misrepresented as published articles.
This report from Ukraine raises a couple of questions:
How many cases of "feral " vaccine polio have occurred in the world, per year?
Given the proximity of the Ukraine cases to the EC countries, what is being done to immunise the population of these countries with killed vaccine? (I know that the UK did finally switch back from sugar lumps to needles some years ago. A switch-back rather late in the day.)
