Vaccine Storage

RCN Publishing have very kindly allowed a direct link to my article on Safe Storage and Handling of Vaccines on the RCN Immunisation page.  Click here to go to this very useful page which includes many resources on immunisation, and click on the image below for the article.

In May 2014, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) published a 45 minute video on Keys to Storing and Handling Your Vaccine Supply which is interesting to watch from a USA perspective.  See here for details and click on the image below for a direct link.

Vaccine Update and Green Book Update Subscription Service

I've always been a fan, but I have to say I think the 'Vaccine Update' now produced by Public Health England, just gets better and better.  But did you know that although thousands of people subscribe to the publication, it's only opened by about 23% of those who receive it?!  Well those that don't look are missing out big time.  It's THE most useful way of keeping yourself up to date on any immunisation issue, and travel is included.  Take a look at the image below from page 4 with news of the latest useful and colourful posters including this on the latest centrally provided vaccines.

And on page 3 it provides information about subscribing directly to receive updates to the Green Book as and when they are published - see below, and click on either image to get a copy of the May 2014 Vaccine Update.
