The students are concerned chiefly
with recommendations to eliminate
350 student spaces on North Campus
and charge students a $2 fee to park
in North Campus lots at night.
One of the committee's proposals
recommends transferring 350 resident

accommodate losses caused by con

People who come to the health
department are immunized free of
charge but must meet certain guide
lines, she said.
Anyone 15 months or older who
was born since Jan. 1, 1957, may be
vaccinated against the disease at the
health department. People born
before 1957 are considered immune.
Those vaccinated before 1968
should be reimmunized since the
vaccine used before that year was an
inactive virus instead of the live strain
used today. Persons who received the

they need to get the vaccination, they
