Article: 52/2501

From June 28 2018, there will be a new online location for information about immunisation and vaccines in Scotland.

NHS Inform is Scotland’s national health information service, aiming to be the single source of health information online for the public in Scotland. The website helps the people of Scotland to make informed decisions about their own health and the health of people they care for. Therefore, on 28 June 2018, the Immunisation Scotland website will close and NHSScotland’s immunisation and vaccine web content will move to the new site.

NHS Inform was redesigned in November 2016 and is now accessible across all mobile devices. The improved accessibility, navigation and user experience has contributed to a significant increase in users, with over 1.7 million individual users visiting in May 2018. The site also has a ‘webchat’ function where the public can ask questions about all health topics, including vaccines.
