Vaccine Incident Guidance 25 Sep 2013

The purpose of the guidance is to provide a consistent framework within which incidents involving inappropriate storage, preparation or administration of vaccines should be considered. The guidance also contains considerations that should be taken into account when deciding whether to revaccinate individuals. This guidance supersedes the advice to NHS boards on management of incidents when vaccines have been stored and exposed to temperatures outside those recommended by vaccine manufacturers issued by Health Protection Scotland in 2007.
