Mortality of polio - ~ 0.2%-3%
Mortality of measles - 0.1%

From the CDC:
Before 1963, approximately 500,000 cases and 500 measles deaths were reported annually, with epidemic cycles every 2 to 3 years.

Approximately 70% of all polio infections in children are asymptomatic.
Quote:
Less than 1% of all polio infections in children result in flaccid paralysis.
Quote:
The case fatality ratio for paralytic polio is generally 2% to 5% among children and up to 15% to 30% among adolescents and adults.
Not many people complain about the vaccinations for measles and polio (loonies not counted).
I don't think it's a question of "fear", but of "common sense" to use the tools we have to prevent disease.

Sure you can be told the "what", but do you have the "why"?
