This patient group direction (PGD) template is to support the national pneumococcal polysaccharide conjugate vaccine (13-valent, adsorbed) (PCV) vaccination programme for individuals from 8 weeks to under 2 years of age. It is valid from 1 February 2016 to 31 January 2018.
The PGD template requires further authorisation by a clinical governance or patient safety lead, who has designated responsibility for signing PGDs on behalf of NHS England for their geographical area. The PGD is not legal or valid without this local, formal authorisation.
Adoption and governance of the use of this PGD is the responsibility of the authorising commissioning body and providers.
Provider organisations, health professionals and immunisation practitioners should check they are working to the current PGD versions and only work to a legally authorised PGD from their commissioning body.
