HC Deb 24 February 1927 vol 202 cc1917-8
71 and 72. Mr. GROVES

asked the Minister of Heath (1) whether he has ordered, or will order, an inquiry into the cases of illness resulting from recent vaccinations at Sheffield;

(2) whether he is aware of the reactions following vaccination at Sheffield, Southport, and other towns; whether his Department attributes these results to the technique or to the quality of the viccine; and is he prepared to publish the evidence?


I will with permission answer these questions together. I am aware that severe reactions following vaccination have been reported at Sheffield and other towns. A medical officer of my Department has recently made inquiries into the results of vaccination at Sheffield on behalf of the Vaccination Committee which is now sitting, and his report will be submitted to that Committee, which will no doubt consider the points mentioned in the hon. Member's second question.

Forward to
