Google Doodle salutes Polio vaccine inventor Jonas Salk



As the death toll of the Ebola outbreak continues to rise, Tuesday’s Google Doodle celebrated the 100th birthday of the man who helped put an end to the post-World War II polio epidemic with the first-ever inactive vaccine for the disease.

The doodle features medical researcher Jonas Salk wearing a white lab coat and standing on a 1950’s-era city sidewalk as people celebrate around him. Two children are holding up a poster that reads “Thank you Dr. Salk” and another is selling a newspaper that reads “Vaccine Works” across the front page over a picture of Salk.
