Green book

The Green Book is a publicly available document on immunisation against infectious disease, which charts the history of immunisation and immunisation advice over the years since this kind of preventative treatment was first used in 1786. This edition was published in 1996, the bicentennial year of Edward Jenner's world-changing discovery.
