Do we have information on the vaccination status of the population of Haiti, perhaps stratified by age? You mention that the VDPV outbreak in 2000-2001 was contained by an OPV campaign. Presumably vaccination has not been administered to the population since then as polio was considered eliminated. That would mean that all kids below 10 years are potentially susceptible. However, looking at the ages of the patients so far show a wide age distribution, so vaccine coverage must have been patchy to begin with in all age classes.
