HC Deb 24 April 1959 vol 604 c70W
Mr. Viant

asked the Minister of Health what is the cost to individuals or the State of each series of inoculations for poliomyelitis.

Mr. Walker-Smith

The cost to the Exchequer of the vaccine for a series of three inoculations is estimated currently at between 10s. and 12s. The cost to local authorities of arranging for the vaccine to be administered varies according to the arrangements made, and I regret that an estimate is not available. No charge is made to the persons vaccinated.
