The Sabin Oral Program

Susan Collum; Mississippi.

I had polio in 1954, at the age of three, and was in the hospital for two weeks in Vicksburg, Mississippi.I have had a very active life and still work. I feel that I am beginning to suffer from fatigue and tire easily when walking.

I recently came across the flier for the Sabin Oral Program.  The program was held in Greenville, Misissippi sometime around 1957.  I can remember going to get my vaccination and complaining to my mother that I didn't like sugar cubes.  Her response was, "Eat it!"
