Sun., June 13, 1982 Avoiding Vaccine Can Be Dangerous DEAR ABBY: Thousands of t parents are frightened and ; confused because of retnt TV publicity emphasizing some extreme side) effects of pertussis wfioping cough) vaccine. Many are asking if they should avoid having their chijdren immunized. "That would be unwise," says the, American public Health Association. Whnnnino onnoh ran rnnco1 brain damage or permanent disabilities, and death! Forty years ago the United States averaged 265,000 wnQoptng cough cases with about 7,000 deaths per year. Tlranks to routine immunizations, we now average only 3,000 cases annually with five to 20 fleaths. "True, In rare cases Vaccines can cause some of the. same damage as the .diseases they seek to prevent. Pertussis vaccine commonly produces irritability, drowsiness or fev$r jn about four out of 10 rhiUiren. One in 300 might develop high fever One In 7,000 might have a seizure. One in about 100,000 might suffer permanent nerve or brain damage. -But the benefits still vastly outweigh the risks. In Great Britain, sensational publicity about vaccine side States would produce 500,000 cases Instead of the 3,000 we now have!

MATEK, AMERICAN PUBLIC HEALTH ASSOCIATION DEAR ABBY: A friend of mine told me that in Denmark, the girls don't have to worry if they've lost their virginity because they do an operation over there that makes virgins out of non-virgins. This friend told me that there is no way for a man to know for sure if the girl is a true virgin or not because this operation is so perfect. Is this true? - JUST CURIOUS DEAR CURIOUS: It is possible to restore a woman to her virginal state surgically, and it can be done in any country where sophisticated plastic (and gynecological) surgery is performed. However, my experts tell me that in some cases this could be a very complicated and costly procedure, and is sure to hurt more than the Bookmobile Scheduled m Announced SALfsBURY - The following is the schedule for the forthcoming week of the Wicomico County Free Library's bookmobile: Monday Hudson Center, 10-10:30 a.m.; Salisbury Nursing Home, 11-11:30 a.m.; Sherwood Circle, 1- 1:30 p.m. and Parkhurst Manor, 2-2:30p.m. Tuesday Pine Bluff Village - 10-11 a.m.; Pine Bluff MAC, 11-11:30 a.m.; Allen, 1-1:30 p.m. and Fruitland, 2-3 p.m. Wednesday Avalon Park, 10:30-11:30 a.m.; Parsonsburg, 12:45-1:10 p.m.; Tommy Tucker 1:15-1:30 p.m.: Willards, 2- 2:30 p.m. and Plainfield, 3- 4 p.m. Thursday Louise Avenue, 10-10:45 a.m.; Crestwood Circle, 11:15-11:45 a.m.; Kilbirnie, 1 : 15-2: 15 p.m. and Pow-ellville, 2:45-3:30 p.m. truth DEAR ABBY: Something has been bothering me for a long time, and 1 want to get it off my chest. We recently saw the movie "On Golden Pond." The acting was superb, the scenery was beautiful, the story was touching and very entertaining, but the language was foul! Some of us in the audience missed so much because of the time lost recovering from the vulgar language. This movie was rated "PG," and there were people of all ages in the audience. How do parents stand a chance of convincing their children that profanity and filthy language are not OK? "On Golden Pond" was such a lovely story; it would easily have been a hit without all that objectionable language. How do you feel about it? -PAT IN PUEBLO DEAR PAT: You took the words right out of my typewriter. 1 1 GETS DEGREE. Kathy R. Benton, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Daniel R.
