SMALL POX.
No cases have been notified since 1894, and no deaths
have occurred in the district during the last thirteen years.
It is very probable that great changes will shortly be
inaugurated by the Local Government Board with reference to
the system of Vaccination.
We shall have the use of humanised lymph prohibited, and
vaccine lymph derived from the calf exclusively used for both
primary and secondary vaccination.
In Germany the system of Vaccinating direct from the Calf
has been abandoned as completely as that from Arm to
Arm, the use of Glycerinated Calf Lymph having become general
throughout the Empire.
