PGD for Revaxis for Travel Purposes


Just found a PGD template for Revaxis which includes TRAVEL in its inclusion criteria from Public Health England, uploaded onto the website in November 2015 and valid until October 2017 see here

The PGD still has to be formally authorised and signed by a clinical governance or patient safety lead, who has designated responsibility for signing PGDs on behalf of NHS England for their geographical area to meet the legal requirements for the PGD. However, for those of us with no PGDs for travel vaccines at the current time, this is helpful!

The inclusion statement says 'Individuals aged 10 years and over who: are travelling to an area where medical attention may not be accessible should a tetanus prone wound occur, or will be residing in epidemic or endemic areas where tetanus, diphtheria or poliomyelitis protection is required and the final dose of the relevant antigen was received more than 10 years ago, even if the individual has received 5 doses of tetanus containing vaccine previously'
