TUESDAY, APRIL 5,195S BLYTHEVtLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THREE Salk Vaccine For 30 Million Readied for June Production Should Satisfy Demand, Polio Expert Says NEW YORK Cft— A polio authority expects drug firms to make enough Salk vaccine before June 30 to Immunize 30 million persons. Earlier estimates called for 18 million. Dr. Hart Van Riper, medical director for the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis, said yesterday this additional production should satisfy the demand for vaccine and keep shortages from developing. Scares Built Up "Unfortunately there has been a tendency recently to build up scares about shortages that I don'i- believe are going to materialize," he said. The official report on whether the vaccine is effective will be . made April 12, If this report indicates that the vaccine provides protection against crippling polio. Van Riper said. there "might be a day or two" of rush on supplies. "But the situation will adjust quickly," he added. For Private Use The polio foundation has ordered enough vaccine for nine million persons and will use it to inoculate mostly first and second-grand children throughout the country. Remaining supplies will be distributed through drugstores to doctors for private use. Van Riper said polio authorities hope special consideration will be given to children in age groups most likely to be stricken. There are 61 million Americans Under 21, the group considered to be in the polio danger zone. Most susceptible years within this group are Irom 5 to 8. 12th Child Poses A Big Problem LOS ANGELES (Jf>) — Mr. and Mrs. Florencio Garcia now have a dozen children but the matter of a, name for the youngest, who arrived yesterday, is quite a problem.
