In the past 50 years immunisation through vaccinations has saved more lives worldwide than any other medical product or procedure. The NHS has an established immunisation programme, which is constantly updated with the latest evidence and recommendations in a resource called 'The Green Book'. Dermatology nurses need to be aware of immunisation advice that is specific to patients with skin conditions. This includes the British Association of Dermatologists' immunisation recommendations for patients on immunosuppressant medication. Dermatology patient groups also advise people with skin conditions on immunisations, for example The National Eczema society has produced a factsheet on immunisation and eczema.
