Children in Halifax County are offered the Sabin vaccine. Over 80% of school children participated, according to the Annual Report of that year. A province-wide program is established then halted due on the advice of the Federal government because of “incidents” following the earlier programs. The Department recommends that all people, and especially adults, have the Salk vaccine prior to the Sabin vaccine.
