HC Deb 11 March 1926 vol 192 c2616W

asked the Minister of Health if the records of his Department show any cases where venereal disease was directly caused by vaccination; and, if so, what number of cases in 1923, 1924, and 1925, respectively?


There is no record in my Department of any such cases since the Vaccination Act of 1898 came into operation, and I am advised that the use of calf lymph, which became general after that Act, renders it impossible for venereal disease to be transmitted by vaccination.
