Sabin on Sunday

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.

  1. I remember getting gunned down at the Armory about 63/65 timeframe. Long line of screaming kids waiting for this alien-type metallic gun to permanently scar your shoulder.
