This ICP has been designed to facilitate the implementation of current guidance and best practice in the management of immunisation for adolescents to complete the 5-dose course of tetanus / diphtheria / polio immunisations and require outstanding doses (e.g. the fifth dose which is commonly known as the “School Leaver Booster”). 


The integrated care pathway for HPV immunisation is now released. This ICP could be adapted for use in other adolescent vaccination programmes. A multi-disciplinary group developed this pathway in early 2011.

Please refer to the separate Evidence Base document for decision support and notes on how to best use this pathway.

It is intended to facilitate communication across the multidisciplinary team and to ensure that an appropriate care plan is implemented for each client.

Further information and downloads of the ICP can be found in our Information Packs section.
