HC Deb 04 December 1995 vol 268 c77W
Mr. Llew Smith

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what assessment he has made of the effectiveness of the monitoring and aftercare support programme established in conjunction with the vaccination campaign instituted in November last year against measles and rubella, covering(a) Blaenau Gwent and (b) Wales. [2766]

Mr. Richards

I am content that there is a well-established satisfactory system in place, covering the United Kingdom as a whole, to monitor adverse reactions to all medicines, including vaccines. Aftercare support, following vaccination, would be a matter for the clinical judgment of an individual patient's practitioner.
