NHSE&I issue updated guidance on flu vacs for 2021/22

April 6, 2021

NHS England and NHS Improvement (NHSE&I) reported in its Primary Care Bulletin that 50 to 64 year olds would be included as an eligible cohort for the 2021/22 flu vaccination season.

Following this announcement, NHSE&I has now published its updated flu reimbursement letter. The updated letter provides information on the flu vaccines which will be reimbursable under the 2021/22 Community Pharmacy Seasonal Influenza Vaccination Advanced Service (Flu Vaccination Service), for the three cohorts (65 years and over, 50-64s and at-risk adults aged 18-64). This includes the addition of another vaccine to those which will be reimbursable – QIVr (Supemtek, Sanofi Pasteur).

It is important that all pharmacy contractors that provide the flu vaccination service review the contents of the letter and use the information contained within to inform their ordering of flu vaccine for the season ahead.
