I wonder if GSK was the one who gave the polio vaccine to the water workers after this accident.

As a precaution, a booster dose of polio vaccine was recommended to persons who have been in contact with the water of river Lasne from September 2, 2014 until the date when the precautionary measures will be lifted.

On September 2, 2014, following a human error, 45 liters of concentrated live polio virus solution were released into the environment in Rixensart city, Belgium by the pharmaceutical company, GlaxoSmithKline (GSK). The liquid was conducted directly to a water-treatment plant Rosieres and released after treatment in river Lasne affluent of river Dyle which is affluent of the Escaut/Scheldt river.
