§ Mr. Buchanan-Smith
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland, if there are adequate stocks of influenza vaccine in Scotland; what advice he is giving to the public regarding vaccination; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Ross
The supplies of vaccine against the most common types of influenza virus are adequate to meet any likely demands. So far as concerns vaccine against the Hong Kong strain I would refer the hon. Member to the Answer given on 16th December by my hon. Friend the Minister of State for Health and Social Security. My Department have been in touch with medical officers of health and general practitioners, and advice can be sought from them.. [Vol. 775, c.261–3.]
