Vaccinations On Arm

about all this prejudice among
women on campus against being
vaccinated on the arm," said Dr.!
Margaret Bell, head of the depart-

Women, and physician for women
at the Health Service.

the danger from infection in a'
vaccination on the leg is almost
twice as great as it is when the
toxin is given in the arm. And
