In a bid to make sure their children and families are up to date on the latest vaccines, the government is launching a new national health care network that aims to provide all British citizens with a choice in the way they get their shots.
The national network will operate under a single system, which will be overseen by a government-appointed board.
It will also include a system for encouraging the voluntary sharing of information about immunisation, which is currently restricted to government departments.
The board will have the power to impose restrictions on who can get a vaccine, but it will be able to set up exemptions for people with certain medical conditions.
The move comes after the government was criticised for being slow to roll out the new system after the first round of trials failed to produce strong evidence that the vaccine was worth the risk.
In a bid for better communication, the health secretary has also announced that a new “social conscience” clause will be added to the new legislation, which aims to allow the voluntary distribution of vaccines to people with no medical need.
It means parents who want their children to be vaccinated can get them from their local council, rather than having to pay for their own shots.
This will make it easier for people to get vaccinated, although critics have warned that it may not be the right way to get the vaccination they need.
This is a big step for the UK, but some experts are worried that it could undermine the trust that has built up in the community.
The government has promised to make vaccination compulsory across the UK by 2025, with the aim of reducing the number of children who die from the disease.
