HC Deb 25 November 1994 vol 250 c408W
Mr. Alton

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what are the reasons for the shortage of supply of the measles only vaccine.

Mr. Sackville

Measles vaccine has not been in routine use in this country since the introduction of the measles/mumps and rubella vaccine in 1988. It has only been available on a "named-patient" basis. Manufacturers have therefore had no need to retain large stocks.
