Practice Opening Rewrite- cardinal

The public’s resistance to vaccination efforts will stop polio from being eradicated. In Nigeria, vaccination efforts were derailed by mere rumors. Anti-polio vaccination groups spread false information about vaccines containing AIDS or harmful drugs, creating defiance toward vaccination. Resistance is furthered by poor Nigerian communities who are frustrated that polio workers will only help with one of their many problems. The opposition even took a violent turn when anti-vaccination terrorists attacked polio workers, killing ten. The failure to vaccinate all children in Nigeria that resulted from this resistance led to an outbreak across the Horn of Africa. If people resist in one place, they will resist elsewhere. Thus, the Horn of Africa’s fate will befall the rest of the world, and polio will never be eradicated.
