Hib/MenC PGD Expiration

Hib/MenC PGD Expiration

The current version of the Hib/MenC, PGD is due to expire on 31st July 2020 and should be archived after this date. The revised PGD should be shared with all personnel responsible for administering this vaccination, as they will require sign off for the revised PGD with effect from 1st Aug 2020.

Please note that Public Health England PGD templates, now include an extended list of practitioners who may be authorised to operate under the PGD, see section 3. These have been included to reflect the expanded roles of allied health practitioners and to allow greater flexibility.

The Hib/MenC Risk Groups PGD will also be withdrawn from 1 August 2020 when the above PGD comes into effect. This is because Immunisation Against Infectious Diseases ‘The Green Book’ no longer indicates additional Hib/MenC vaccination in accordance with the Hib/MenC Risk Groups PGD.
