HC Deb 13 February 1996 vol 271 c560W
Mr. Barry Field

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what guidance he has issued to parents of children who have been advised not to have the MMR vaccination because of contra-indications in other members of the same family; and what implications this guidance has for general practitioners in rural areas achieving their immunisation targets. [14445]

Mr. Horam

There are very few true contra-indications to immunisation; these are listed in the Heath Education Authority's leaflet, "A Guide to Childhood Immunisations", which is available to all parents.

General practitioner immunisation target levels allow for the fact that immunisation is contra-indicated for some children.
