HC Deb 30 March 1914 vol 60 cc861-2W

asked the Secretary for Scotland how many cases of small-pox have been notified in Aberdeen during this year; how many of the sufferers have not been vaccinated; how many have been vaccinated; how many re-vaccinated; if any deaths were reported; and, if so, to which of the three classes they belonged?


Six cases of small-pox have occurred in Aberdeen this year. All these have been vaccinated in infancy and none have been re-vaccinated, though in one case re-vaccination had been unsuccessfully attempted on three occasions. One death has occurred of a man of forty-seven who had not been vaccinated since infancy.
