Was confused between A and E,

(A) just as polio vaccine is given to every person to protect the few who might actually contract polio
(B) like polio vaccine, which is given to every person to protect the few who might contract polio (Incorrect use of 'like', comparing two clauses)
(C) similar to polio vaccine which is given to every person to protect the few who might actually contract polio (Incorrect Comparison between Polio Vaccines and the 2nd clause)
(D) while, to protect the few who might actually contract polio, polio vaccine is given to every person
(E) similar to the giving of polio vaccine to every person in order to protect the few who might contract polio actually

A seems to be the best fit because of clear meaning.

I think in the idiom "Just as X, so Y" so is optional. It is similar to "If X, then Y", where then is optional.

BTW B seems grammatically correct. Only the meaning is nonsensical.

Yes,B is ok wrt the use of' like' but the meaning is incorrect---- like polio vaccine , dietary changes also protect people who might contract polio

b/w A and E its the structure in E ( similar to the giving of ---) , mass dietary change, the giving is compared to change and the word 'actually' should be placed as close to the word it modifies 'actually contract polio' is preferred

but in A the comparison is direct and just as X, Y construction is maintained

so A is correct
