The Green Book is the UK Department of Health's guide to Immunisation Against Infectious Disease. It is aimed at healthcare professionals who immunise, and has the latest information on vaccines and vaccination procedures in the UK.
Public Health England publishes statistical data about infectious diseases:
All drugs have both a Summary of Product Characteristics (SPC) and a Patient Information Leaflet (PIL). These documents contain much of the same information, but are written with different audiences in mind: the SPC is aimed at medical professionals, while the PIL is aimed at patients. People without a medical background are advised to use the PILs as they are easier to understand. However, we have given links to most of the SPCs as well. (Department of Health advice is based on the most up-to-date information on each vaccine and may be slightly different from the information in some of the SPCs and PILs.)
The list below contains all the vaccines currently used in the UK by the NHS. Other vaccines have been licensed for use in the UK and may occasionally be used (for example, by private providers). If in doubt ask for the trade name of the vaccine and a copy of the Patient Information Leaflet.
NaTHNaC (the National Travel Health Network and Centre) provides up to date and reliable information on travel vaccines for UK travellers on its Travel Health Pro pages. NaTHNaC is commissioned by the UK government through Public Health England.
