CLINIC NOW GOING
ON IN COUNTY
By HEALTH DEPARTMENT
On April 12, 1955, the American
public was told that Salk Poliomye
litis Vaccine was safe and efficient.
The National Infantile Paralysis
Foundation had purchased enough
vaccine to give two doses of this
product to each first and second
?rade child; naturally this would be
lone only w'jh the parents' permis
iion. The first vaccine for use in
,he Western area of the State arriv
ed in Ashcville April 16, 1955. It
vas a real ffiriH for your health of
icer to be the one to receive it and
jgn the air express receipt. Here
vas a real protection for our chil
dren against a much dreaded disease,
iut the vaccine in glass ampules in
i refrigerator was of no value; that
accine must be properly given to our
.lildren. The doctors of the Madi
on County Medical Society, without
nought of their already over
fowded sohedules and well knowing
here was no financial recompense,
agreed to work-wfct the Health De
partment in giving this vaccine to
-irst and second grade children in
jach of our nine schools.
In the fall of 1955 yc-ur Health
Department felt we should cfifer
Mi polio vaccine to our incoming
ilrst grade children, The same
Madison County physicians gave this
accine in our various school clinics
jo these first grade children.
.' Now a request ' ha'e made vy
teachers and parents that this proj
ection from poliomyelitis be given
to apy school child up through 19
. ears of age and that clinics for do-
jurihis be set vo in each school, fie;

Society, Dr OUs Puck, who agreed
4 -consult i each pnyeteian member
and ' report to the Health' Depart-'
ment The result is the schedule you
,ee below. Every resident in this
jounty should appreciate this extra
service your physicians are giving to
you. Doctors who give so willingly
it their time to prevent illness,
who serve you so unselfishly, are to
be admired and respected. Madisor.
Jounty should be very proud of these
We need to emphasize the fact
that the supply of Salk Polio Vac
cine is still not adequate to keep up
with the demand. . When our allotted
supply is exhausted we cannot vac
cinate any more children.
Clinic Schedule, giving First Dose
date, Second Dose Date, and School,
is as follows:
