Bristol Immunisation Group

The Bristol Immunisation Group Health Integration Team (BIG HIT) is a team of public and child health experts, scientists and health practitioners working together to improve the uptake of immunisations across Bristol.

The immunisation programme in the UK is expanding and changing. Bristol faces specific challenges in delivering the programme in an accessible, equitable way to the population who need it. Vaccine preventable diseases such as pertussis cause significant epidemics and our vaccination rates in some localities (particularly East and inner city) leave a door open to the return of measles which continues to threaten our population.
