I recently read In The reporter- News (hat the DPT vaccination may become law requiring all children lo recrhc U before entering school. It also .staled that the nnly vaccination now required Is the smallpox vaccination, llmmcr, I know children who arc attending Abilene public schools that have never had the smallpox vaccination. Why Isn't this law en- forced? flu we have any guarantee that the DPT vaccination lav would be enforced? A. K the DPT vaccination law stales enforcement is mandatory, then it will he automatically enforced and doctor's certificates will be required, proving Immunization, says Supt. of Schools A. K. Wells. The present Immunization law leaves It up lo the local school boards to decide whether or rot smallpox vaccinations arc mandatory. In this area it's not mandatory, but even EO 77 per cent of the first graders have smallpox vaccinations. Because some religious groups object to immunizations and for other complicated medical reasons the Abilene School Board decided not lo mnke the vaccination a requirement for enrollment. Q.
