March 12, 1954

FITCHBURG SENTINEL, Mass., March 12, 1954 

* Jonas Salk
* Polio vaccine success

Page 4 has a early report on the success of the polio vaccine with a one column heading: "Expects Permanent Immunity From Polio" (see images) This was a very early report of clinical trial successes, and it would be 13 months later that a formal announcement would be made of a definitive polio vaccine being successful.
Complete with 14 pages, light toning and minor wear at the margins, generally very nice.
