§ Ms Primarolo
To ask the Secretary of State for Health what plan she has to include the BCG vaccination in the target for general practitioners.
§ Mr. Sackville
BCG vaccination is recommended for schoolchildren aged between 10 and 13 years. The majority of such vaccinations are given in schools as part of the school health service. Therefore, it would not be appropriate to include the BCG vaccination in the target scheme for general practitioners.
