The Department of Public Health introduces “Immunization Month” in November. The evaluation of the first year finds that there was an increase of over 17,000 vaccinations administered in the last quarter of 1977 as compared with the final quarter of 1976. Most of these additional shots were attributed to adults receiving booster “biad” shots (TP) [PANS, RG 25, Vol. 603, File 5].
