The current Patient Group Directions for Boostrix-IPV, Pneumococcal (PPV and PCV) and Hib/MenC have been updated.
- Boostrix-IPV/ Repevax (Combined Diphtheria, Tetanus, Acellular Pertussis and Inactivated Poliomyelitis Vaccine)
- Pneumococcal Vaccines (Prevenar 13 and Pneumococcal Polysaccharide Vaccine)

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.
