The UK Routine Immunisation Programme is subject to continual evaluation and review by the JCVI in response to new and emerging evidence, resulting in regular changes to vaccine policy.  In recent years the schedule has become more complex (Ref. National Minimum Standards).

This workshop is aimed at Registered Practitioners currently involved in the delivery of the UK Routine Immunisation Programme, (whether advising or administering) it covers recommended changes to practice and up to date policies and guidelines.
