HC Deb 01 March 1951 vol 484 c312W
73. Mr. Braine

asked the Minister of Health what was the acceptance rate of infant vaccination for each of the years 1946 to 1950.

Mr. Blenkinsop

The 1946 acceptance rate was just over 41 per cent., and for 1949 it has been roughly estimated as about 28 per cent. I regret that no estimates can be made for 1947 and 1948 because of changes in the basis of data bound up with the alteration of the vaccination system on the introduction of the National Health Service. A calculation for 1950 cannot yet be made.
