Vaccine update: issue 210 December 2013


This year has probably been the busiest 12 months that any of us in the fields of vaccination and immunisation can remember. Three new vaccination programmes:

  • rotavirus for babies
  • shingles for older people
  • flu for healthy children

One rescheduled programme: MenC.

We wish all our readers and all those who have helped deliver a record-breaking year of vaccine introductions, a very merry Christmas and a happy new year.
