We are delighted to share with you the second edition of the good practice immunisation template. The template has been updated and is now available as a digital download and electronic booklet.

The template includes an additional chapter on "Equality Impact Assessment" with examples of evidence that can be used to support a local (EIA) for vaccine policies, strategies or procedures.

The examples provided against each protected characteristic can be used to populate and support local EIA's as required.The template has been designed to assist health and social care professionals who are completing the vaccine and immunisation component of the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA).

The purpose of this part of the JSNA is to examine the information that is available about vaccine uptake in the local area and consider ways to improve coverage.
