Labor need* to be united as

made on labor in the capitols of

Sen. Joe M<x,a,Ui> of Wisconsin

the President and his fellow Re

of Republicanism. Instead their
candidate, Walter Kohler, was

From the outset, Mr. Eisen

right wing members of the COP

Salk Vaccine
A report of the House Govern
m e n t Operations Committee
shows, once again, just how barf

messed up the Salk antipolio
vaccine program. The Commit
tee criticizes what it calls unim
aginative and less-than-effoctivc

Is Reducing
Polio Threat
With the peak of the polio
season practically over, one big
fact becomes apparent. Over 70
million people in the country
had had at least one shot of Salk
polio vaccine by September 1,
and this summer the number of
polio cases dropped to a new
low. It is clear that the Salk
vaccine is safe and it works.
How do we know it's safe? Be
cause the U. S. government tests
this vaccine thoroughly and con
tinuously, and must approve all
that is used. How do we know
It works? Because recent medi
cal studies show that three piop
crly spaced shots of Salk vaccine
give immunity to 90 per cent of
the persons injected.
But once the summer polio sea
forget about it. They think that
polio is licked and they don't
son is over p. ople tend to
need to worry about it any more.
Nothing could be farthur from
the truth.
that, in the words of Dr. Jonas
The first thing to remember is
Salk, ‘‘Your neighbor’* vaccina
tion doesn’t protect you.” The
Salk vaccine does not “wipe out’’
the polio virus. It protects a
gainst paralysis, but the virus
remains alive and can be passed
on to other people. Unless you
yourself have been vaccinated,
you are as likely to "catch” po
lio as you were before there was
a Salk vaccine.
The second thing to remember
is that you need three shots of
vaccine: the second shot two to
six weeks after the first, the third
shot seven months after the sec
ond. Unless you get all three,
you don’t have maxium protec
tion against paralysis.
M you start thia fall, you can
be fully protected by next spring
when paralytic polio may again
become a menace to your life,
your earning capacity and your
rarcer. See your doctor about
vaccinations now for every mem
ber of your family under 40 year*
of age, beginning with the baby.

Asian Flu
Epidemic Is
Epidemic Alert
Medical and public health au
thoritics now believe that we are
almost certain to have widespread
epidemics of influenza this fall
and winter. This prediction is
based on the appearance of an
entirely new strain of Type A
influenza virus against which our
people have no specific immuni
ty, and which has already caused
widespread epidemics in several
foreign countries and localized
outbreaks in this country. This
1 new “Asian” strain of virus la
now seeded throughout the Lni
ted States.
Characteristics of the Disease
The disease caused by this
virus is characterized by its
abruptness, severity of symp
toms, shortness of duration (3 to
5 days), and low mortality rate.
Deaths that occur are usually in
the extremes of age and those
who are debilitated, and particu
larly those who have pulmonaiy
or cardiac diseases. The serious
ness of an epidemic in a com
munity is expected to arise from
the high attack rate (15 to 20
percent) occurring over a period
of 3 to 4 weeks, which can seri
ously disrupt normal community
activities and overwhelm hospi
tal and/medical facilities unless
the proper steps are taken to
minimize this situation.
Vaccina Program
A monovalent vaccine giving
good protection against Asian in
fluenza is being manufactured
in ever-increasing quantities by
si* pharmaceutical houses. The
’ widest possible use of this vac
| cine la to be encouraged in an
attempt to prevent epidemics
1 froth occurring, or to minilnize
| the impact on a community,
j There are to be no government
' restrictions or controls on the
use of the vaccine, but the phar
maceutical houses have volun
tarily agreed to an allocation
plan whereby each state will re
ceive its proportionate share of
vaccine based on its population
Nebraska receives 0.8% of the
total outpput. Vaccine is now
coming into the state in increas-1
ing quantities. It is anticipated
that the supply will be adequate
in sixty to ninety days.
During the next few weeks,
when the demand for vaccine is
expected to be greater than the
available supply, physicians are
urged to use some form of pri
ority system in the administra
tion of the vaccine. It will be de
sirable at the local level to ar
rive at this priority plan by joint
decision between the medical
profession and local community
advisory groups. A suggested
priority plan places those persons
in the community responsible
of providing medical and hospi
tal services at the head of the
list, with persons deemed essen
tial for maintaining other com
munity services second (fire, po
lice, public utilitites, communi
cation workers, etc.), and those
persons most likely to have sc
vere complications third, (Per
sons who are debilitated or have
cardiac or pulmonary diseases.)
Two precautions are to be ou
served in the use of the vaccine.
First, since it is an egg product,
persons sensitive to eggs, chick
ens, or chicken feathers, should
under no circumstances receive
vaccine, but rather should run
the risk of contracting Asian in
flurnza. Second, since it does
cause undesirable reactions in
very young infants, it is recom
mended that it not be given to
infants under 3 months of age.
For pre-school children under 3
years of age, 1/10 cc intracu
taneously or subcutaneously re
peated after an interval of one
to two weeks, is considered safe.
Children from 5 to 12 years of
age may be given % cc subcutan
eously, also repeated after an in
terval of one to two weeks. Child
ren 13 years of age and older
may receive the adult dose of 1
cc subcutaneously.
When vaccine becomes avail
able In sufficient quantities to
meet the demand and It becomes
necessary to embark on a vaccine
promotion campaign, materials
will be available to assist each
community in such a program
