Repevax and Infanrix-IPV PGDs extended until 31st October 2016

PGD extension letter – Repevax and Infanrix

The current Patient Group Direction (PGD) for the pre-school booster (combined diphtheria, tetanus, acellular pertussis and inactivated poliomyelitis vaccine (Repevax and Infanrix IPV vaccines) – NECSAT 2014/014) expires on 31st August 2016.

In order for the approval process to be completed appropriately it has been necessary to extend the authorisation of the PGD for 2 months, until the new PGD is issued.

The attached letter authorises and extends the validity of the Repevax and Infanrix PGD to continue to be valid and used until 31st October 2016, unless replaced earlier.

Updated PGDs: Boostrix-IPV/ Repevax, Pneumococcal Vaccines, Hib/MenC Vaccine

The current Patient Group Directions for Boostrix-IPV, Pneumococcal (PPV and PCV) and Hib/MenC have been updated.

The new PGDs have been jointly developed and authorised by NECS and NHS England for use by practices and services within the Durham, Darlington, Tees, Cumbria, Northumberland and Tyne & Wear areas.  These new PGDs reflect the most up to date recommendations and have been produced to support the national immunisation programme and replace all previous versions.
