HC Deb 29 May 1934 vol 290 c38W

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether instructions of any kind have been issued to Army medical services, or any other department of the Army, in connection with inoculation against diphtheria and inoculation against enteric?


Yes, Sir. I have already been in communication with the hon. Member upon the matter. Immunisation by means of protective inoculation against diphtheria and typhoid fever is on a voluntary basis in the Army, and all ranks, with very few exceptions, take advantage of these preventive measures in their own interests.
