March 18, 1969
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Some 40,000 units of measles vaccine will be shipped to Israel within the next two weeks to inoculate Arab children in the occupied territories. The vaccine is being collected and shipped by Hadassah, the Women’s Zionist Organization of America. Some 20,000 units already provided by pharmaceutical manufacturers have been shipped. Hadassah undertook to sponsor the vaccine effort following a recent visit to Israel by its national president, Mrs. Max Schenk, and national chairman of its medical organization, Mrs. Charlotte Jacobson, when they learned it was needed.
