HC Deb 25 July 1960 vol 627 cc94-5W
85. Lord Balniel

asked the Minister of Health what steps are to be taken to accelerate the poliomyelitis vaccination programme for expectant mothers.

Miss Pitt

With the co-operation of general practitioners, local health authorities are continuously encouraging expectant mothers to come forward for vaccination; and we seek to reinforce their efforts by appropriate publicity methods and as suitable opportunities arise.
