HC Deb 03 August 1882 vol 273 c609

asked the President of the Local Government Board, Whether he has yet received the Report of the Medical Inspector of the Board in regard to the vaccination fatality at Norwich; whether he is aware that other similar cases have since occurred there; and, whether he will issue immediate instructions forbidding the use of the lymph which has produced such results?


I have not yet received the report of the Medical Inspector of the Board, as the investigation has not yet been completed. I have heard that one case of erysipelas has occurred at Norwich in a recently-vaccinated child since the group of cases to which my attention was first directed; but, at present, I have no information showing that the erysipelas was due to the lymph employed.
