PUBLIC-HOUSES AND VACCINATION
A letter was read from the Local Government Board respecting the election of Dr. Williams as vaccination officer for the Pentrefoelas district. The letter also alluded to the fact that the Gywdyr Arms Inn, Dolwyddelan, was used as a vaccination station, and added that experience led then to hold strong objections to the use of public-houses as vaccination stations, – Mr. Daniel Williams: They are quiet right. – It was mentioned that in three parishes inns were used for such a purpose. – The Chairman: In places like Dolwyddelan it does not much matter, because there are no characters fond of drink there (laughter), – Mr. Daniel Williams: Like Trefriw (much laughter). – The Chairman thought that perhaps the schoolroom might be used in the parishes named and the relieving officer was instructed to try and get the use of other buildings for vaccination purposes.
