Poster: Polio Spreads Easily

This poster covers the following information: 

Polio spreads easily. Most people who get infected with poliovirus (about 72%) will not have any visible symptoms. People with symptoms will have:

  • Sore throat
  • Fever
  • Tiredness
  • Nausea
  • Headache
  • Stomach pain

These symptoms usually last 2 to 5 days. If you have polio symptoms, immediately report your symptoms to medical staff. Get the polio vaccine if it is offered by medical staff.
