It is apparently inde- pendent of the serotype or strain. An example of drift in an epidemic came from a trial of a novel type 3 vaccine strain in Poland in 1968 (5). The strain was being developed as a replacement for the type 3 Sabin strain, which proved difficult to produce consistently. The novel strain had excellent laboratory properties in terms of the stability of its attenuation when it was grown in culture and the immunity induced in recipients. In Poland, a few children were vaccinated without ill effects, but some six months later there was an epidemic of poliomyelitis in a nearby city.

In Uttar Pradesh, the number of vaccination teams with at least one female member is increasing, as is the number of teams with a third member being drawn from the community.
