Public Health England publishes COVID-19 vaccine guidance for health and social care workers

There is a new chapter in Immunisation against infectious disease (the Green Book) and the new training and information materials have been designed to help train and inform the workforce who will deliver the COVID-19 vaccine.

SPS commentary:

The new coronavirus (COVID-19) chapter in Green Book covers:

  • guidance on the storage, dosing and schedule of the vaccines
  • provisional priority groups recommended by the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI), to help the NHS with its deployment planning
  • advice on vaccination of high risk groups
  • guidance on potential adverse effects, which current evidence suggests are mild and short-term
