Public Health England’s (PHE) online Green Book contains the latest information on vaccines and vaccination procedures, for vaccine preventable infectious diseases in the UK. Healthcare professionals involved in immunisation are reminded that the Green Book is continually being updated to reflect changing guidance, and this resource should be checked regularly to ensure the most current guidance is being used. 

Recent updates include: 

  • Immunity and how vaccines work: Chapter 1, which now includes information on the newest types of vaccine that use the pathogen’s genetic code (DNA or RNA vaccines). 
  • COVID-19: Chapter 14a, which provides information on the coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccines, the dosage and schedule for the UK and recommendations for the use of the vaccine.
