More shots will make it worse not better. Measles went extinct in the Americas in 2002. Since then the disease is caused mostly by the vaccine.
Recently vaccinated individuals are infectious for "2-3" days we thought. Turns out that can be up to a year.
This is worse, far worse with polio. And is why even polion and even smallpox s not extinct: vaccines spread disease.
Measles was well on its way to being extinct when the vaccine came out in 1961. As long as we vaccinate it will never go away.

"We demonstrated excretion of the Schwarz measles vaccine virus in a child with a vaccine-associated febrile rash illness in urine and in pharyngeal excretions."

The tally for 2018 shows a dramatic swing: 98 cases of vaccine-derived polio; 29 cases of the wild version.
In 2018 they caused cases of paralytic polio in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Nigeria, Niger and Somalia. Genomic analysis of the strains involved showed that they had crossed borders, which is rare for vaccine-derived strains, and that some had circulated undetected for as long as four years.

Health officials worry that the outbreaks may spread to neighbouring countries.
That is a setback for Africa. The last person on the continent paralysed by the wild polio virus was a Nigerian child who contracted the disease in 2016, so Africa has probably already eradicated the wild virus
stopping oral polio vaccine use as soon as it is safely possible to do so"
2007 American soldier vaccinated for smallpox three weeks before shipping out to Iraq returns home to visit his family. His two-year-old son, two weeks later, develops a severe and dangerous skin infection caused by vaccinia virus. Critically ill, the child spends seven weeks in the hospital and is successfully treated with new anti-smallpox viral therapy. Soldier’s wife also ill from smallpox, has a mild case, and recovers

Questions of vaccine efficacy and harm
While it is clearly false that all vaccines are unsafe and ineffective it is not valid to suggest all vaccines are safe and effective.
As always, ignore labels, examine evidence.
Disclaimer: I have for decades on this network been a pro-vaccine proponent. I have routinely dismissed any negative discussion of vaccines as not serious.
But a funny thing happened while I was trying to prove at the science of the idea. The "measles model" does not apply to all viruses, Ebola and flu are not things you can ever get a working vaccine for. Polio the great success story now has major issues: SV40 research is painfully contemporary; somebody needs to explain why they reused needles in only the Belgian Congo which spread HIV vie polio shots; the only polio we find in the wild now is lab strains. All we've done in the end it to replace the wild strain with a lab strain.
That fact we do not and may never know where Marburg came from is worrisome. The US attempts by Secretary Clinton to literally smuggle banned Ebola recombinant virus pieces, when we know the virus has been aerosolized even more so.
I don't consider myself "Anti-Vax" and hope you don't think I am. But they need to be safe and they need to be effective.
Just in the scope of flu alone famous disasters abound: in 1948 no flu shot worked. In 1977 one person died of flu and 32 died of the flu shot. From that lab leak the Spanish Flu of 1918/19 leaked out, a virus the world virology community begged the US not to recover, but they did and it got out.
Now it's in so many animals worldwide - pigs and birds are the problem, that it's even in Penguins now. From one lab leak (and there have been many, even with Ebola) and now penguins have the virus.
These are not signs we are on the right course here trying to make sick people better. We need a robust vaccine industry but one not married to the snakes and rattles of the homeopathic origins of the art and at some point we must stop patting ourselves on the back to adding shelf life to something that isn't alive and look at what these things actually do to the body and the human genome over time. SV40 was one accident, Marburg another. Neither of these would have happened if we weren't playing with monkey glands ot make a certain kind of medicine, ludicrous on the face of it when others have been shown to work bur rejected for economic or political and not scientific reasons.
