May 13, 1964, Neenah-Menasha Daily Northwestern
I remember only too well, standing in line down at Jefferson Elementary school for a polio shot. Later, I remember getting a sugar cube, which I thought was weird, though in retrospect, was rather a humane, wonderful surprise, considering how frightened I was of needles. My experience pre-dated this 1964 opportunity and I wonder how long this went on into the 1960's. As the disease isn't in our public consciousness any longer, I was initially taken aback when I saw this in the newspaper.
