Jonas Salk Ends Paralyzing Summers
Monday, April 12 at 7:30 pm
Everyone who is old enough remembers where they were on April 12, 1955 when the Polio Vaccine was heralded. Horns honked, church bells rang, people celebrated in the streets. It was official: The Salk Vaccine Is Safe and Works! This is the story of Salk’s journey to discovery, the setbacks, the grit, the naysayers, and the triumph of a national hero.
