The HepA/B vaccine patient group direction (PGD) supports the provision of HepA/B vaccine to individuals aged one year and over who require pre-exposure immunisation against hepatitis A and B virus.
The HepA/B vaccine PGD v02.00 is valid from 1 November 2019 to 31 October 2021.
Practitioners must not use these PGD templates until they have been authorised in Section 2. This is a legal requirement (see Human Medicines Regulations 2012). Practitioners should follow local policy or procedures to access authorised PGD documents.
The HepA/B vaccine (temp) PGD was withdrawn from 31 October 2020, on its expiry. A subsequent version of this temporary PGD has not been issued since it pertains to recommendations for use during times of monovalent hepatitis vaccine supply shortages. Monovalent hepatitis vaccine supplies are currently considered adequate.
