History for Kids – Something That Saved Lots of American People’s Life

Have you ever heard of polio? Polio is a powerful disease. It can make people paralyzed. More kids got it than adults. If you were a kid and living in the 1940s and 1950s there would be a pretty good chance you would get polio. Today in history Jonas Salk announced his polio vaccine for America to use. He published in the year 1953. ┬áJonas tested the vaccine before it was safe to use it for all for America. He first tested on his wife and his three sons. He won a congressional gold award. His whole name is Jonas E. Salk. His middle name is Edward. I am so happy that Jonas invented the vaccine — it saved lots of American people’s life.

If you want to read a good chapter book about polio one I recommend Small Steps: The Year I got Polio by Peg Kehret. It is a autobiography.
