Donald Gross, right, a visiting assistant professor of political science at the University of Kentucky, stared straight ahead as he got his swine-flu shot October 28, 1976 at Memorial Coliseum from Paul Merkel, a state health department worker. Volunteer Judy Irvin, center, kept his sleeve up. This was the first of five local clinics for swine-flu shots for the general public. An estimated 5,000 people came to coliseum the first night and the health department expected to inoculate about 125,000 people before the program ended. Photo by David Perry | Staff
