    "Post-vaccination reactions to an Asian strain influenza vaccine used in a study at CDC are summarized in this report. A slight but real increase in the incidence of influenza-like illness has been noted in the OPD of Charity Hospital in New Orleans. Asian strain virus has been recovered from one of those sporadic cases. Virus has also been identified among sporadic cases at an Army Camp in New Jersey and two Air Force Bases in Texas. Confirmation of Asian strain influenza virus has also been reported from the community epidemic in Tangiapahoa Paris, Louisiana. Influenza-like illnesses have occurred among a group of exchange students recently arrived in New York City. These students have come from any parts of Europe and Asia. Two deaths previously reported as influenza-associated have been removed from the list. The final diagnosis for one was bulbar poliomyelitis while the other, the 12-year-old boy, died of meningococcemia." - p. 2
