HC Deb 03 May 1974 vol 872 c283W
Sir George Young

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if she will review her policy on whooping cough vaccination in view of the fact that a number of children are now known to suffer permanent brain damage from this treatment.

Dr. Owen

The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation, which advises me in this field, keeps policy on whooping cough vaccination under review and is examining ways of intensifying the study of complications that are known to arise on rare occasions.
