Anecdote

The Times (London), Oct 16, 1875, page 11, col G, Issue: 28448

At Lambeth, William John Mote, Whateley-road, Dulwich, was summoned for not having his child vaccinated. Mr Stevens, the officer appointed by the Camberwell parish, proved that the defendant had been served with notice to have his child John vaccinated. The defendant asked for a mitigation of the penalty, and complained of the hardship of the Vaccination Laws, which ought to be repealed. Mr Ellison said he had only to enforce the law as he found it. The defendant said the opinion was gaining ground that compulsory vaccination was iniquitous and must be repealed. The laws on vaccination were disgraceful to the Legislature and cruel to the public. Mr Stevens said the defendant, under the 31st section of the Act, had been required to produce the child, and had not obeyed the order. Mr Ellison imposed a penalty of 10s., with costs, for the non-production of the child, and made an order that the child be vaccinated within 14 days.10
