Excerpt
EXPERT COMMITTEE ON YELLOW FEVER VACCINE First Report * A session of an Expert Committee on Yellow Fever Vaccine was held in Geneva from 8 to 13 April 1957. The session was opened by Dr M. G. Candau, Director-General of the World Health Organization. In his opening address Dr Candau stated that vaccination against yellow fever has been the concern of WHO from the time the Organization came into being, as this vaccination is officially sanctioned by international health legislation. He pointed out that this meeting had to consider yellow fever vaccine from a technical point of view, its production and control, and save a short summary of the problems which called for the most immediate attention.
