Hold it don't see any problem with it.

B. like polio vaccine, which is given to every person to protect the few who might contract polio
like polio, should be immediately followed by Mass Dietary changes.

C. similar to polio vaccine which is given to every person in order to protect the few who might actually contract polio
Hold it don't see any problem with it.

D. while, to protect the few who might actually contract polio, polio vaccine is given to every person
Awkward construction.

E. similar to the giving of polio vaccine to every person in order to protect the few who might contract polio actually
who is "giving"?

Between A and C. I will go for A because of concision.

"Just as... so to" is right form of the idiom. Hence A is incorrect. Please note what is being compared- "Mass dietary change" to "Polio Vaccine" in the original construct. This comparison is more logical if we use "giving of polio vaccine" make the comparison proper and also parallel.
Hence E.
