Polio vaccinations will be offered
The Columbia County Board of Health has appointed Dr. Wade R. Bedingfield Jr. to be Columbia County's polio vaccine clinician. By purchasing the vaccinations in bulk, the county is able to distribute them to citizens 20 years and older at the cost of $1.25 per dose. Children 19 and under can receive the vaccinations for free. The clinics will be held at public schools.
UGA turning away female applicants
The University of Georgia has announced that it will be unable to accept any more women for fall quarter admission. All available housing has been assigned.
The university will accept women for admission in the summer quarter. If space becomes available by "dropouts," summer applicants will have the opportunity to enroll in the fall.
UGA will continue to accept admissions applications from men.
