New Green Book published

A new print version of Immunisation against Infectious Disease (more commonly known as the Green Book) has been published and distributed by the Department of Health.

This new version is the first print update since 1996 and has therefore been completely revised and features new sections and chapters. It can be ordered online from the Stationary Office at a cost of £45.00.

Alternatively, if you believe you should have received a free copy as part of the NHS mailing a letter sent with the Green Book states that you should telephone 0845 954 000 or email greenbook@broadsystem.com and leave the following details:

This letter also contains details of how to return a book if you have received a copy but don't feel it is relevant to your work.

Action: The Green Book is available online but an updated print copy is a welcome update. All clinicians involved in any aspect of immunisation should have access to a copy of the Green Book (either online or in print).
