HC Deb 20 November 1919 vol 121 cc1173-4W

asked the Minister of Health whether instructions have been issued by his Department to medical officers of health to arrange for a supply of anti-influenza vaccine for the public, or whether those medical officers of health who are notifying the public in their districts that such vaccine is available at a certain specified charge are acting independently of the Ministry of Health?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative; but the Ministry are now making arrangements for the preparation of a new supply of anti-influenza vaccine to be made available to medical officers of health for distribution to all practitioners in their areas who desire it. A Circular and Instructions will be issued, I hope, in a few days.
