VACCINATION. The Clerk, referring to the letter received from the Local Government Board, at the last meeting, said that it was no longer incumbent on the Board to provide vaccination stations. It was now the duty of the vaccinating officers to wait upon people at their own houses. It would, however, be a great convenience often* to the people themselves to come to the vaccination stations. Miss Gwyn asked how many vaccination stations there were ? The Clerk said that there were 27 stations, and six doctors. It might be found useful to retain some of the stations and not others. Mr Bireham had suggested last week that a committee ho. formed to deal with the matter. A committee was then appointed.
