Hon. J. W. Monleilh (Minister of National Health and Welfare):
Mr. Speaker, the house may be interested to learn of a major step forward being taken this week in connection with oral poliovirus vaccine. Starting today, community-wide use of the oral vaccine will be demonstrated in the city of Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. This demonstration, and one being held later this week in Wedgeport, Nova Scotia, will be the first on a community basis in this country.
The new vaccine, manufactured in Canada, is of the Sabin type, similar to that which has been used in other parts of the world.
