Title

Your Pharmacist Explains the...Salk Polio Vaccine Test 3 Poster Set for Pharmacy Windows

Description

Set of three posters for pharmacy windows titled "Your Pharmacist Explains the... Salk Polio Vaccine Test" printed in 1954. These "ethical displays" were designed and written by Frank Pinchak, a pharmacist from Paterson, New Jersey. Published by his company Professional Advancement Plan, Pinchak sold the posters to pharmacists around the country. He donated the posters to the American Institute of the History of Pharmacy in 2013. The main poster reads: "By early 1955 the test sponsored by the national foundation for infantile paralysis will have been evaluated... Until all reports have been completed no vaccine will be available for general use." Side poster #1 reads: "Safe... Over half a million 2nd grade children in over 200 counties thruout the nation have been inoculated. Cooperation of foundation with local medical groups makes it possible." Side poster #2 reads: "3. Formalin inactivates all 3 types of polio virus to prevent infection... The body then builds its own immunity."
