Health Council voted to discon!inue supplying private physlcmns & clinics with vaccine Over the years, the State Department of Health and Consolidated Laboratories has uti- lized federal funds from the Centers for Disease Control and state gener- al funds to purchase vaccine for childhood vaccine preventable dis- eases. According to Robert M. Wentz, M.D., State Health Officer, the state has provided private physi- cians these vaccines at no charge for the past seven years. These vac- cines include DTP, which provides protection from diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis (whooping cough), OPV or oral polio vaccine, and MMR which protects against measles, mumps and reubella (German measles). Dr. Wentz indicated that on January 24, 1990, the State Health Council voted to support the Department's recommendation to discontinue supplying private physicians and clinics with vaccine effective March 1, 1990. Physicians have been advised to order their vaccine supplies from vaccine ven- dors and have been provided with vendor names and addresses. According to Wentz, the vaccines purchased by the Department will be fumished to the local, city and county health departments and will be available to all children of fami- lies unable to afford the cost of vac- cine and vaccine administration in private physicians' offices. Wen indicated that there are various rea- sons for the policy change includ- ing the following: 1. The change will allow the Department of Health and Consolidated Laboratories to better target state-provided vaccine to those least able to pay. 2. The Department will be better able to direct vaccine to North Dakota residents. In the past, a sub- stantial amount of vaccine was being used to immunize out-of-state residents in border clinics. 3. The Department will be able to achieve some significant cost sav- ings in packaging and shipping of the vaccine. 4. The policy change will allow the Department to provide second doses of the measles-mumps- reubella vaccine to children in the 4-6 year age range as recently rec- ommended by the Advisory Committee for Immunization Practices and the Centers for Disease Control.

I I outheast Vo ational Center Students attending the Southeast Vocational Center have been taking advantage of CHOICES, a relative- ly new career guidance program in its second year of use. Juniors of the four area schools are presently going through this 3-4 hour career exploration system. CHOICES is both a computer and career exploration system. However student find that they need no prior knowledge of com- puters to benefit from it. The process consists in complet- ing a series of self-assessment exer- cises ina work book called the Guide. This is followed up by spending approximately an hour conversing with the computer in a question and answer type of format. The computer provides a complete printout and conversation summary which is used for follow-up career counseling. The student at this time will have 3-5 good lists of occupa- tions for consideration. Students can access the computer to a Search section and an Information section. The Search section allows the user to explore for occup ations using as an refer- ence the personal information gained from the work completed in the Guide workbook. This section also can use a route called Related which generates occupations relat- ed to a base occupation on the basis of the attributes of that occupation. The Information section provides detailed information on 675 occu- pations and thousands of related Ken Reuther titles. The Choices Career comput- erized program, there is also a col- leges component. Information on over 2400 colleges is available in reference to tuition and housing costs, admission details, academic programs, etc. This type of infor- mation should help students with informed choices in careers. We are hopeful that by the use of this high technology system, stu- dents will have another key to help them make sound career choices in a complex and changing society.
