Announcement from the Board of Health on Vaccination.

Let it be known to everyone that at 10 in the morning on Monday of next week, that being the 24th of January, vaccinations will take place again at the Protestant Church in Waikiki Kai. Therefore, everyone who got vaccinated last Monday should go there to receive their clearance papers, and also those of Waikiki who were not previously vaccinated.

And at 12 noon of that same day, vaccinations will begin at the Protestant church at Kamoiliili.

Therefore, everyone who has not gotten vaccinated should go there, from Punahou, Manoa, Palolo, Waikiki Uka, and Waikiki Waena, as well as Waialae and Niu; there you will receive the vaccination at no cost for all children and adults who were not previously vaccinated. Be vigilant, O People, and come down; for this is the means by which you will escape the devastating disease, smallpox.
