Pakistan Fighting to Vaccinate

Pakistan Fighting to Vaccinate

In this Tuesday, Feb. 17, 2015 photo, Sharjeel, who is paralyzed due to polio, sits in his wheelchair outside his home in Islamabad, Pakistan. While vaccine distrust has sparked debates amid a measles outbreak in the United States, Pakistan is in a deadly battle to wipe out polio. Long eradicated in the West, polio remains endemic in Pakistan after the Taliban banned vaccinations, attacks targeted medical staffers and suspicions lingered about the inoculations. (AP Photo/B.K.
