Vaccine administration/ Green Book published 1992

The request was partially successful.

Dear Department of Health and Social Care,

Q1, Who was responsible for inputting the vaccine administration chapter in the Green Book published 1992?

Q2 Was it information from the human vaccine research programme carried out in Gulf War 1991 that limited administration of vaccines to no more than 4? (5+ is exempt in the Green Book) (1992)

Q3 If the Gulf War human vaccine research programme was not the programme that influenced the maximum vaccines that should be given in 1 session, then please give data surrounding the other human research programme/s that were carried out prior to 1992 to enable DOH to be able to input these instructions into the Green Book. Thankyou for your honest and transparent answers as required by Law in advance,

Kind Regards,

gavin roberts
