Study: Combining vaccines boosts polio immunity

Polio has been wiped out of many countries thanks to massive use of oral vaccine. But new research suggests trying a one-two punch where the disease is still a threat: Giving a single vaccine shot to children who’ve already gotten the drops boosted their immunity. World Health Organization officials say the combination strategy could help finally eradicate polio. (AP Photo/Mohammed Zaatari, File)
