Salmonella surveillance report ; no. 51, AUGUST 15, 1966
  • Description:
    For the Month of June, 1966. We give our best wishes to Dr. Richard N. Collins, Chief of the Salmonella Unit for the past year, who has completed his 2-year assignment at the Communicable Disease Center. Dr. Collins has returned to Yale University School of Medicine to serve as a Senior Resident in the Department of Medicine. Dr. Albert R. Martin will assume duties as Chief of the Salmonella Unit. This issue of the Salmonella Surveillance Report includes a recent recommendation by the Public Health Service Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices on the use of typhoid vaccine. In addition, there is an interesting recent report from the Food and Drug Administration concerning salmonella contamination of drug substances of animal origin. During June, a total of 2,126 isolations of salmonellae from humans was reported, an average of 425 isolations per week. This represented an increase of 67 isolations over the weekly average for May, but a decrease of 10 recoveries from the weekly average during June 1965. The cumulative number of isolations reported for the first 6 months of 1966 was 8,877, 5.4 percent fewer than 9,388, the number recovered during the same period in 1965.
