Protected in Protection

Protection from polio was the mission of the Salk vaccine. And in 1957 Protection Kansas made national news when every citizen under 40 was inoculated with the new Salk vaccine, becoming the first city in the country to be 100% protected against polio.

The plaque at Broadway and Walnut in Protection (Comanche County) tells the story.

Was anyone reading this one of those people? If so, tell us more!

Backwards? Hey, we're often ahead of the game! Know that and you'll "Get Kansas!"
