HC Deb 27 October 1943 vol 393 c196W
Mr. Viant

asked the Secretary of State for War whether any record is kept of the officers and men who are unsuccessfully vaccinated against smallpox; what constitutes a successful vaccination; and, in the event of officers or men who have been previously vaccinated contracting smallpox, are the previous vaccinations in these cases considered to have been unsuccessful?

Sir J. Grigg

The answer to the first part of the Question is "Yes, Sir." The success or failure of vaccination is judged by the reaction at the site of vaccination. The answer to the last part of the Question is "No, Sir."
