About

The HPS Scottish Vaccine Update is the national bulletin on immunisation in Scotland, published on a regular basis.

Scottish Vaccine Update aims to provide front line health professionals in Scotland with information and practical advice on immunisation policy and practice together with vaccine supply information. It is used to provide information covering the following topics: Scottish Government policy issues (e.g. CMO letters), changes to national immunisation programme, information of Scottish immunisation practice such as guidelines and best practice statements, updates to 'Green Book', vaccine uptake information, publicity for national meetings and vaccine supply information.

HPS took over responsibility for publication of Scottish Vaccine Update in August 2009. Issues of Scottish Vaccine Update are available as PDF documents.
