    "The influenza epidemic continues to decline by all modes of measurement. Influenza and pneumonia mortality remains elevated only in the Western divisions, but appears to be declining to normal. Denver is the only major city with a marked increase in deaths recently. National Health Survey figures show a continuing decline. A slight increase in the number of cities with excess industrial absenteeism is seen, but this may be due .to seasonal factors. Comparable 1956 December absentee data are not yet available. Examination of the influenza map reveals that no major geographic region remains to be involved in this country. Although scattered outbreaks continue, no major epidemic has recurred in a previously involved population. A total of 54,442,984 ml of Asian influenza vaccine has been released rhrough December 12. During the past week, only 679,925 ml were released; and, production estimates for the next few weeks have been decreased." - p. [2]
