Description

More than 4,500 nuns in the Archdiocese of New York lined up for polio shots this week under the guidance of Cardinal Spellman, who looks on as Sister Bernadette receives her shot from Sister Marie Teresita. 'I've already had four polio shots.' the Cardinal declared. The March of dimes, which financed research that developed the vaccine, heartily endorsed the action of the nuns in taking the vaccine. 'This will encourage many others to get their shots,' the Foundation said.
