The CDC says- “Nasopharyngeal specimens were positive for rhinovirus/enterovirus in six out of eight patients that were tested. Of the six positive specimens, four were typed as EV-D68, and the other two are pending typing results. Testing of other specimens is still in process. Eight out of nine children have been confirmed to be up to date on polio vaccinations. Epidemiologic and laboratory investigations of these cases are ongoing.”

And there is this from the CDC regarding non-polio enterovirus- “Prevention & Treatment There is no vaccine to protect you from non-polio enterovirus infection.”
