asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether, in the event of vaccination of the personnel of the Royal Navy being unsuccessful, the fact is recorded; and how many such unsuccessful vaccinations have been recorded since the outbreak of the war?

The results of all vaccinations whether successful or otherwise are recorded in the medical history sheets of the personnel vaccinated. Owing to shortage of staff and other difficulties, however, I regret that analysed figures are not available for periods subsequent to the outbreak of war.
