Packet of Vaccine Labels

These labels were produced for use by the London County Council Pathological Service, probably to label bottles of vaccine that were part of a London schools vaccination programme. The labels ensure that basic information about the type and strength of the vaccine is present as well as providing a reminder about how to extract it from the bottle.

Vaccination is not without dangers and it is essential to know the quantity of vaccine used as too high a dosage can be harmful to health and too low a dosage can have no effect.
