U.S. Moves In For.the Kill on Polio * -By JERRY BENNETT NEA Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON - (NBA)-Com- murtities throughout the nation are moving In for the kill on polio. Ho. Armed with the miracle Salk vaccine, the United States Public Health Service, National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis and American Medical Association are getting ready to complete inoculation of the bulk of the population. The total cost of this campaign may be close to 100 million dollars. Some shots are still being given free, But where people can afford to pay, there is a charge of $8 or so. By late fall or early winter, they hope the 109 million people under 40 will have received at lesst one of the three vaccine shots needed for full protection. This is the large age group which the murderous, crippling disease usually strikes. Shortage of Serum Health officials plan to reach their goal by year-round campaigns promoting use of the Salk vaccine. Right now NFIP reports a shortage of serum due to some weak shipments which had to he rejected. Another reason for the shortage is attributed to the greater demand and use of the vaccine during the'last few months. However, an NFIP spokesman says there will be enough ready by fall to inoculate everyone who wants it. Already more than 68 million have received at least one shot since Salk vaccine was first introduced in 1955. Seventeen • million of these were inoculated from March 15 to July 1 of this year. Since inoculations started, only 42 people out of 20 million who received all three shots have contracted paralytic polio. Paralytic cases Those who haven't had the full set or have taken no shots at all didn't fare so well. Since January this year, paralytic cases have totaled 674. However, during t h e same period in 1956, 1,527 were maimed. The public Health Service recently described the damaging blows Salk vaccine is inflicting on the disease. Since Jan. 1 of this year, 1.557 cases have been reported. There were almost twice as many during the same time last year. From 1952-56 the average number of a year's first six months was 4,294. NFIP officials attribute these advances to hard-hitting prollcity and an unusually fast public acceptance of the vaccine. An NFIP spokesman recently declared the Salk drug has had "a broader public acceptance in a shorter space of time than other vaccines." Big Campaign' One of the largest campaigns to promote the serum was kicked off this year at the January meeting of the AMA. Following this group's announcement of a plan to vaccinate all Americans under 40, towns and cities all over the country moved into action. Polio clinics were set up in hospitals, schools, and industrial plants. Mobile units rolled out into the countryside. Merchants planned contests to promote the drive. The only requirement to enter was that a person must have received at least one polio shot. The town of Protection, Kan., was the first to vaccinate 100 per cent of its under-40 age group. -Formerly a haven from Indian attacks, the community became one of the stronger fortifications against polio.
