The Endgame: The Quest to Vaccinate the World and End Polio

The Endgame is a 30-minute documentary on the quest to vaccinate the world and finally eradicate the devastating disease, polio. Released in 2018, Endgame has drawn a new audience since the Covid-19 pandemic changed everything. Since the first polio vaccine was administered in 1956, the fight to eliminate the virus has become the greatest peacetime mobilization in human history. The Strategic Plan for Polio Eradication and Endgame 2013-2018 was a comprehensive long-term strategy designed to create a polio-free world by 2018. It was almost successful, with only 33 new cases reported in 2018. To continue the extinction of the virus, we will have to vaccinate for about 20 years after the registration of the last case. But as the virus goes away, the vaccination case becomes more difficult to continue. This film follows a chain of seven people who each seek to answer their own pressing questions about the virus, how it affects us and how to make it go away.
