11 a. m. to 4:30 p. m.
The dread disease, polio, can be ban
ished from the Tri-Cities forever if
every person in the area from the age
of three months up is immunized by
taking Sabin oral vaccine in the Stop
Polio Sunday campaign September 20
and November 15.
Fieldcrest employees and their fami
lies will share in the largest public
health campaign ever conducted in this
area when they go to the various im
munization clinics to be set up through
out Rockingham County, primarily in
school buildings, from noon until 6 p. m.
on the two Stop Polio Sunday dates.
Dr. L. Gordon Clarke, of Draper, med
ical director of the Stop Polio Sunday
campaign in the county, emphasized the
need for everyone to take both doses
of the vaccine for complete protection
“Our goal for the campaign is 100%
immunization,” Dr. Clarke said. “The
success of this tremendous undertaking
depends on the cooperation of every
person in the county, from infants to
grandparents. Everyone needs to take
Sabin oral vaccine to stop polio.”
He stressed the importance of im
munizing every person over the age of
three months, including senior citizens.
Those who have received Salk shots
should also take the Sabin doses.
“The Sabin vaccine eliminates the
possibility of carrying the polio virus
in the body, to be passed on to an un
protected person. In addition, it ends
the need for booster shots,” Dr. Clarke
The vaccine will be available at the
following locations in the Tri-Cities:
Leaksville Graded School, Douglass
High School, Draper Elementary School,
Central Elementary School and at the
Rock Church, in Spray.
Clinics in western Rockingham Coun
ty will be set up at Madison Elementary
School, the Mayodan YMCA, Stoneville
and Bethany schools.
In Reidsville, the vaccine will be ad
ministered at South End School, Law-
