September 2017: Links to the online version of the Green Book were added. Parts of recommendation 6 were removed to bring it in line with the incorporation of hepatitis B vaccination into the standard routine vaccinations for babies. Terminology throughout was updated to reflect current public sector structures for commissioning and delivery of immunisation services where these had changed since original publication.
August 2010: The immunisations website which is referred to in this guidance has been closed. Resources for professionals are now available from Department of Health pages and for parents, carers and patients at NHS Choices.
