 F.W. WOOLWORTH CO. TO PROVIDE FREE TB IMMUNIZATION
 AT WEST PHILADELPHIA STORE
 PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- The F.W. Woolworth Co. Store at 5200 Market St., corner of 52nd, in West Philadelphia has set aside a special section on its main floor to provide free anti-tuberculosis immunization inoculations Saturday, Nov. 14, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., the company announced.
 Medical doctors from the University of Pennsylvania and Misericordia hospitals will be on hand to administer the program, including screening. Children will be required to have a parent accompany them.
 The program, which Woolworth is providing in collaboration with the Philadelphia Department of Health, is the first of its kind at a Woolworth store in Philadelphia, according to Walter Granison, assistant director of human resources at company headquarters in New York. Additional Woolworth stores in Philadelphia will offer other health reinforcement programs in the spring, he said.
 Persons receiving a shot for TB immunization at the store will be required to have a follow-up "reading" 48 to 72 hours after the inoculation. Readings will be done from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 16, at the city's health center No. 4, 4400 Haverford Ave.
