The proportion of deaths to cases treated is under one
per cent. The respective districts have been altered in extent
and boundaries during the past year and do not correspond with
the districts of former reports, so that no comparison would be
of value.

This is the return usually given by the Vaccination Officer
at the end of each year. It is always a year in arrear of other
returns and applies only to children born before January 31st,
1893. Out of 5,012 registered births 3,469 have been successfully
vaccinated, 406 have died before vaccination, chiefly
premature births, 172 have been postponed for health conditions,
29 are said to be insusceptible of vaccination, a very
doubtful condition, due probably to failure from the use of
stored lymph, 428 had removed and it is to be hoped have been
vaccinated elsewhere, and 508 are unaccounted for.
