Statement regarding polio vaccine in BSE scare

20 October 2000
Action Research - the leading medical research charity that helped fund the development of Britain’s first polio vaccine - supported the decision to withdraw the vaccine, however voiced concerns that the level of vaccinations in the UK should not drop. Director of the charity John Grounds said: “It is generally considered that polio is a threat of the past in this country but this is only due to the comprehensive vaccination programme that is in place. Our concern is that this present withdrawal of the vaccination does not lead to a serious reduction in the level of vaccinations in the UK.” Duncan Barkes Press Office 01403 327404
