The Final Punch gives a behind the scenes look at the challenges and sacrifices made by polio vaccinators in Pakistan, who are risking their lives to ensure every child receives the oral polio vaccine. In the last two years, more than 65 health workers lost their lives while immunizing children against polio in Pakistan, a country that accounts for more than 85 percent of polio cases worldwide. Although Pakistan continues to battle this crippling disease, polio is 99 percent eliminated from the planet. Once eradicated, it will be the second disease since smallpox to be eliminated from the world.
