PHE publish leaflet on flu vac supplies

October 8, 2020

The Department of Health and Social Care, Public Health England (PHE) and the NHS have published a leaflet for the public, which explains why some people eligible for flu vaccination are being asked to wait to get vaccinated. This follows significant early demand for flu vaccinations being seen this season, with some pharmacies and general practices already having run out of initial supplies of the vaccine.

The leaflet can be downloaded from the GOV.UK website and the leaflet text is also available on that site, so pharmacy contractors may want to highlight this information to patients via their website or social media.

Copies of the leaflet can also be ordered from PHE.
