NIHHMHIMIMMHIMMUMHIMIHII MHMMHIMHtlHMMIHIIIMIIIIMIMHHMMMIHIIMMIHHHIIIHtlMMIl Oral vaccine to be given at Bancroft Plans are. well underway for the polio imnuini/alion clinic, to be held at Bancroft on Saliir- daq, Aug. 2(i from 1 In 'I o'clock. The Bancroft Chamber of Commerce, sponsors of tho clinic, state that all persons who have been, immunized against polio more.than two years at-" should now receive a booster dose of the oral polio vaccine. Sabin oral polio vaccine, the newest form of immunixation against polio, is the simplest form of imnuini/alion yet devised, This liquid vaccine i-an be mixed with distilled water and drank. However, the wonderful modern protection is only effective if it is used. According to surveys conducted in four Iowa counties in 1064. over one million lowans are not currently protected against polio. All ages can and should be immunized against polio my- elilis. Although the disease has usually attacked children and young adults, according to the Iowa State Department of Health it is also a potential hazard for older persons. Iowa's age distribution of eases has ranged from ten days to 78 years old. Since older age groups can act as carriers of the disease, without actually being ill themselves, it is important that they too be immunized. The Iowa Stale Department of Health states that more people in Iowa are immunized against poliomyelitis than for any other preventable disease, due to community educational campaigns and mass clinics. However, virtually everyone should be immunized to insure our community against even one needless case of polio. Plan now to take your entire family to the polio clinic in Bancroft. If you have never been immunized for polio, you must receive the second dose of the vaccine to obtain adequate protection. If you have been previously immunized against polio, one dose of oral polio vaccine will strengthen your protection. Q. Where will the clinic be held. •HMtlHMMMHmitllHMIHIMmiHHIHIIIWHIIMHHItnHlttlHHIIMMIMI A. Bancroft Legion Clubrooms. Q. What will the vaccine cost? A. 50c. pre-schoolers i'rcc by registering with secretary at the door. Q. Why do we need booster? A. Research has proven that as time progresses, the anti-bodies which the vaccine builds slowly diminishes. The boosters build these antibodies back and protect us. Q. How IOIIR after a person takes the vaccine docs it become effective in providing immunity? A. From two to three weeks. Q. Does this vaccine provide protection against all types of polio? A. Yes, There are three types of polio known to medical science, and protection' against'all throe, typps, is included in the oral vaccine., '••< " ,'••:••.&*?' Q. Wli.v is it necessary to take the vaccine now, when we do not have any incidence of polio in this area? A. Experts feel that it is better to conduct a program like this before an epidemic strikes than wait until it is here. Q. If my child has a cold will he receive the vaccine? A. Yes, unless the cold is a severe one or unless it is accompanied by a fever. 1C in doubt, ask your doctor. Q. How often should I have a a polio booster? A. You should have a polio booster every three to five years. Mrs. Tibodeau services held Mrs. O. II.
