By MJCHELE BUJOLD Philip Hurley, director of Nashua" Board of Health, said .to- day that for the Erst time chtl dren in kindergarten and Grade will be immunized against German measles, (Rubella) Tar get date is set for sometime next month. He there was no definite evidence of an epi- demic, the 'Nashua area could conceivably get "some rise in cases" of the disease. He explained that the new'vac- cine against. German measles is not In full production yet, but that as soon as it is available, immunization programs wfll start. The state Board of Health has assured the local board of funds for an immunization 'clinic for kindergarten children and-first graders, he.said. The reasoning behind the im- munization of this particular age group, he was that "these children are "more susceptible to the disease. This is their first concerted experience with the outside world.. "In he these children are Immunized, the disease will not be brought' back inW their homes to infect: younger children, and adults bave.never-had it." _ i The planned immunization wiHF affect some local chlldravl' be said He noted however, that there t have been delivery problems withX t the vaccine, and this is one of reasons it is not available. There have also been rumors of a strike pending in the plant where the vaccine is manufactured, and this .would affect the program and the target date considerably. Hur- ley said. The Board.iof then indicated that as soon as the vaccine was made readily-avail- able, definite plans would be m ade for the immunization clinics, including dates, times'and places. He said that the Board of Health is erpJoring the possibility oi acquiring more.funds from state the pro- gram to a larger number of dren. Such' attempts'-would be furthered, be said, when the vac-; cine is available.: He said that one of the northers 'if areas in the state bar already begun its immunization program.
