HC Deb 20 December 1935 vol 307 cc2140-1W

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what arrangements, if any, are made by his Department for the supply of lymph to public vaccinators; whether the Public Health Department has a vaccine institution, and, if so, where is this situated; and, if vaccinators make their own arrangements for obtaining lymph, whether he can state its usual source?


There are no public vaccinators in Scotland, but arrangements exist for the supply of lymph by the Department of Health for Scotland free of charge to vaccinators appointed in terms of the Vaccination (Scotland) Act, 1863, who care to apply for it. The Department have no vaccine institution, the lymph being obtained from a firm of lymph manufacturers. No information is available as to the source from which vaccinators who do not avail themselves of the Department's arrangements obtain their supplies of lymph.
