County Physician Vaccinates 65 People Against Typhoid in Pleasant Garden, N.C., 1914

From the Thursday, July 23, 1914, issue of the High Point Review

Greensboro—County Physician W.M. Jones gave 65 people of the Pleasant Garden community anti-typhoid vaccine. These people responded without any solicitation and no notice except the mere statement that the county health officer would be present at the time to administer the vaccine to those who desired it. Doctor Jones said that if the offer to vaccinate had been made four years ago there would have been no response whatever and people would have scored “the fake.”
