I remember being vaccinated at school. My memory is that is was an inoculation but my sister is convinced it was given to us orally in a sugar cube. I don't know which of us is remembering right. I do know we were vaccinated! My mother was a nurse and had spent some of her early nursing career in a polio hospital. You can just imagine what her opinion of anti-vaxxers is.
