Campaign On Here Countywide polio immunization of every man, woman and child his spring and summer is the goal of Humboldt - Del Norte County Medical Society, just, announced. The campaign to place the Sabin oral vaccine p r o g r a m within reach of everyone from 3 months to 100 years was launched at a meeting of the society last week at Humboldt State College. Dr. Don .J Lowe, society president, and Dr. Richard L. Anderson of the Polio Committee, today announced plans for the county low-cost immunization setup. The local program will tie in with the national one to stamp out polio by wiping out the virus completely. Dates for the three necessary doses, usually g i v e n on sugar lumps, are the first week in June, first week in July and first week in August. Because of the huge scope of the campaign, aimed at preventing spread of the crippling disease, the opening program in this area will be given at a below- cost price of $1 a dose, according He stressed this is a special price based on the volume expected and "the normal fee will be charged later." Members of the county medical group, taking this campaign as a means of contributing to preventive medicine and public health, will work with the County Welfare Department so no person wili have to go without the immunization, Dr. Lowe said. "We want to include every person in the program and we want to make every doctor's office an immunization station for this purpose," the medical officer said. Explaining the importance ol the oral vaccine program, Dr. Anderson said the Salk vaccine gives only partial protection for a relatively short period of time. In contract, he said, the oral vaccine gives virtually complete, lifetime protection, or 100 per cent, when the three strains ol virus are given in three doses. With the Salk vaccine, he continued, a person still can contracl polio and it docs not prevent spreading. The oral vaccine, in contrast, prevents transmission or spreading of the disease. The surgeon - general of the Jnited States, according to Dr. Anderson, has recommended that community steps be taken to immunize every person, to wipe out jolio throughout the nation. To this effect no children will e admitted to schools next fall who have not begun the dosage, unless for religious objection, according to California law. The polio campaign will progress in two stages, the first mass inoculation plan to convert the population from partial to complete immunization, and the second a longtcrm plan for inoculation of infants. "The only expedient way to accomplish this in short order is to convert the county medical society to a public health agency," Dr. Anderson said. "It is expected all doctors' offices in the two counties will participate," he said. Two drug companies, the Sabin in England and the Lederle in New York, will have the vaccine available for the June program, according to Dr. Lowe. "The oral vaccine is not a new one," he said. Millions of people in the world have been immunized so far \vith this type, which has been proven safe throughout Europe, South America, Africa and Japan. "Actually, tests on the oral and the Salk vaccine were begun about the same time," the doctor said. "Small study group tests were made 10 years ago with success, followed 5 years ago by mass group tests, also successful." Evelyn Bulls Trinidad Housewife "Yes, I Ihink we should.

Premier Pompidou Takes · Over French Post Today PARIS (UPI) -- France's new Premier Georges Pompidou takes office today in a formal ceremony lo start the second phase of President Charles de Gaulle's program lo transform his country into a world power once again. De Gaulle, solidly supported by the French people in his fight to grant independence to Algeria, moved ahead with an ambitious program a i m e d at restoring France's sagging prestige.
