bul l feel a<> will not have done our
full dut i toward our school children
until we require their immunisation'
against diseases which we Know are
"'Our Maryland law,' , says Dr.
Jtobert II. lllley, director ol the Department
of Health of that State,
'requires every child to be vaccinated
against smallpox before he or
she can bo enrolled in any public
school in' the State. Physicians are
expected to vaccinate all babies under
their care before the children
are u year old. Until children are of
school age, the responsibility for [
having it done rests with the parents!
After tliaiv it is shared by the teachers
and other school authprttles.
Any teacher, school trustee, or commissioner
of a public school who admits
a child who has not been successfully
vaccinated against smallpox
is liable to a fine of 910.' NVUat
Maryland: rue done, North Carolina
can and ought to do, but it ought to
go further and Include typhoid fever
and dophtheria. There have been
only two cases of smallpox in Maryland
In eight years. One of these occurred
In 1931, the other in 1936.
The other years In that period were
fret: from any cases whatever.
"T(he North Carolina State Board
of (Health, on July 8. 1932. voted unanlmously
in favor of compulsory
vaccination of children before allowing
trem to matriculate." This
policy ought to be written Into our
law books, and I hope that some day
it will, for not until then can we
. ".hope to root out these diseases
which are preventable and yet continue
to mar our health recordts and
needlessly endanger the lives of our
people. Jn the meantime, however,
all of us should voluntarily cooper
ate in urging inoculation ngafnet
preventable diseases before children
enter school, ff a child is immunized
aigatnst diphtheria when it is be?
tween six an I1', twelve months old it
is made the toepeflciary of the best
kind of licglth 'insurance.
"Kven among Vthose who are work
ing so faithfully to encourage immunization.
there should be no let
tip in activities, lit must be remem'
be red that there tis always a hew
genef-ation rem ill* on ? and that
is just why there] ought to be laws
tmacted requiring- -such immuniza_4?
