Abstract Israel was certified as polio-free country in June 2002, along with the rest of the World Health Organization European Region. Some 11 years later, wild-type polio virus ₁ (WPV₁) was isolated initially from routine sewage samples collected between 7 and 13 April 2013 in two cities in the Southern district. WPV₁-specific analysis of samples indicated WPV₁ introduction into that area in early February 2013. National supplementary immunisation with oral polio vaccine has been ongoing since August 2013.
