Mr STOKES (MARIBYRNONG, VICTORIA) - Has the attention of the Minister for Health been drawn to a statement made by Dr. Brennan on the occasion of the annual conference of the Victorian Health Inspectors Association that, whilst Salk vaccine had almost wiped out poliomyelitis in Victoria, he was most concerned by the lack of applicants for immunization from the non-school teenage group? If this is also the case in other States will the Minister consider stepping-up publicity in connexion with the present re-opening of the Salk vaccine campaign in order to bring more forcefully before members of this age group the urgent necessity for immunization?
