Flu vaccination stocks


Flu vaccination stocks

March 1, 2019

We are getting reports that there are a few people trying to access flu vaccinations via GPs or pharmacies, so NHS England has asked contractors to provide information on the availability. Just as a reminder, the National Advanced Service Specification states:

3.2 The service is effective from 1 September and runs to 31 March, but focus should be given to vaccinating eligible patients between 1 September and 31 January each year. Eligible patients should be vaccinated as soon as the vaccine is available. Widespread immunisation may continue until December in order to achieve maximum impact, but where possible, should be completed before flu starts to circulate in the community. However, flu can circulate considerably later than this and pharmacists should apply clinical judgement to assess the needs of individual patients who are eligible for vaccination under this service to receive immunisation beyond 31 January. This should take into account the level of flu-like illness in the community and the fact that immune response following immunisation takes about two weeks to fully develop.

To date, we have the following pharmacies across Shropshire, Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire with stock:
