President KisenhOMOr's signing of the polio vaccine assistance act "n Aug. 32 probably came loo lale to do much good this year. This new law makes 30 million dollars available for allocation lo Ihc slates for vaccinating chil- dren under 20 ami expectant mothers. No al- lotments of Snlk vaccine have been made un- der Ihis act so far. It may be several weeks before they can begin. The previous voluntary assistance plan, which went into effecl July 31, gives priority to children in Ihc 5-lo-fl age group. Over two million shots, have so far allocated to the stales for this program. Hut in ihe Snlk vaccine field trials last year, no clear evidence of immunity was found un- til from two lo four weeks after the third shot had been administered. ;
