Protection is a city in Comanche County, Kansas with a population of 514. Protection was founded in 1884. Popular support for a protective tariff in the 1884 presidential election caused the name of “Protection” to be selected. The first post office in Protection was established on August 27, 1884. The town became nationally and internationally known via radio and television in 1955–1956, when the National Polio Foundation chose it as the center for the free distribution of Salk vaccine shots for polio. It then became 100 percent contained.
Protection is found in the beautiful Gypsum Hills (also known as the Gyp Hills, Red Hills & Medicine Hills) are a region of rolling hills, mesas, canyons and buttes in central Kansas, just north of the Oklahoma border.
