Although he was scheduled to perform live, he first spoke over a short film which showed some children sick with polio.
Elvis announced: “Hey kids, could I talk to you for about 30 seconds? This is Elvis Presley.
“If you think polio is beaten I’d ask you to listen to me… Now, that’s the voice of thousands who know the fight against polio is just as tough as it ever was.”
After detailing the struggles against the vaccine prices, Elvis supported a forthcoming fundraiser for kids’ vaccines.

Dolly Parton recently followed in Elvis’ footsteps when she posted her coronavirus vaccination on her Twitter account this week.
The singer showed off just how easy it was to receive the jab while singing her hit song Jolene.
The star did remix the song, however replacing “Jolene” with “vaccine”.
The Grammy Award winning singer said: “I just want to say to all of you cowards out there – don’t be such a chicken squat. Get out there and get your shot!”
She also said: “I’m dead serious about the vaccine. I think we all want to get back to normal, whatever that is.
“And that would be a great shot in the arm, wouldn’t it, if we could get back to that?”
