Paralympian Ade Adepitan throws support behind Polio Booster Campaign – NHS England

British Paralympian, Ade Adepitan is throwing his support behind the NHS polio booster vaccination drive in London, having suffered from the disease when he was 15 months, resulting in him permanently losing the use of his legs.

The basketball player and TV presenter is urging parents in London to ensure their children are fully vaccinated against the virus, with nearly three in four children in the capital yet to receive a polio booster.

The NHS in London is offering all children aged 1 – 9 years a polio booster vaccination to protect them against the virus, after vaccine-derived polio virus was detected in sewage water.
