WHAT TO DO IF POLIO COMES YOUR WAY 

Keep children with their own friend*. Keep them away from people lliey have not been with 
right along, especially in close, dally living. Many people have polio infection without 
showing signs of sickness. Without knowing it, they can pass the Infection on to others 

Try not to flet overtired by work, hard plav or travel. If you already have Hie polio Infection in 
your body, being very t ued may bring on serious polio 

Keep from gettina chilled- Don'! baihe or swim too long In cold water Take off vv »*i < -tollies at ODCf 
Chilling can lessen your body's protection against polio 

Keep dean. Wash hancU carefully Before eating and always arier using the toilet Hands may 
carry polio Infection into the body through the mftjlh Also keep food clean and covered 

. WATCH FOR EARLY SIGNS OF SICKNESS 

Polio starts In different ways— with headache, sore throat, upset stomach or fever Persons cool- 
ing down with polio may also feel nervous, cross or dizzy They may have trouble m swallowing 

or breathing. Often there is a stiff neck and back 

ACT QUICKLY— CALL YOUR DOCTOR AT ONCE 
Until he comes, keep the patient quiet and In bed, away from others.
