State Offers Free Vaccinations Against Diphtheria to Counties That Request Them, 1921

From the April, 1921, issue of The Health Bulletin, published by the North Carolina State Board of Health.
Diphtheria killed 273 babies in North Carolina in 1920. Toxin-antitoxin treatment prevents the sickness itself. Your county can and should offer this free to your baby. Person, Davie, Rockingham, Randolph, Caldwell, Martin, and Greene counties are protecting their babies.
Are not the babies in your county as good as these?
(Dr. J.S. Mitchener was state Chief of the North Carolina Bureau of Epidemiology.)
