Health Service Gives Free Salk Injections

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The University Health Service announced yesterday that it is now administering free Salk shots to any student under 30, since it currently has a surplus of dated polio vaccine. This limit for using most of this surplus will expire Thursday, after which free innoculations will be available only to those under 20.
