The Public Health Agency (PHA) has relaunched Transmit, their Health Protection Service bulletin. The publication will be issued quarterly and will focus on issues of common interest, along with providing updates on some of the PHA’s work programmes.
This edition covers an update on issues PHA deal with in the Duty Room, in particular common immunisation queries which arise in relation to existing and new immunisation programmes. The Health Protection Service is currently managing a cluster of PVL staph aureus infection in the South-Eastern/North Down area and this edition provides an update and progress with this. The latest HIV and STI surveillance report is also available on the PHA website.
