Providing the flu vaccination service in a COVID-safe way: PSNC Early guidance briefing

July 8, 2020

In the flu vaccination season ahead, there will be a new challenge to overcome when providing the service: how to do so in a COVID-safe way?

To help contractors and their teams with this, PSNC have published a briefing which:

  • provides early guidance for contractors and their teams on the regular in-pharmacy vaccination service;
  • highlights the potential scenarios being discussed that may provide additional opportunities to provide the community pharmacy flu vaccination service in other environments;
  • lists considerations that contractors may need to reflect on ahead of the service launch; and
  • highlights other resources which may support contractors to provide the service.

We strongly recommend that contractors use the information in the briefing document to plan how they may be able to provide a COVID-safe service this year.

Contractors must however note that the changes PSNC is seeking to the flu vaccination service, described in the briefing, have not yet been agreed and may never be agreed by NHSE&I. PSNC will confirm any agreed changes as soon as possible, but in the meantime, the options presented should only be used for planning purposes.
