Community pharmacists in England provided 595,467 flu vaccinations to patients under the national NHS Flu Vaccination Service in 2015/16.

The NHS Business Services Authority has published the Advance Flu Report 2015/16, detailing the community pharmacy contractors who signed up to deliver the service, as well as the NHS England area, name of vaccine administered, manufacturer, quantity, and drug and fee costs.

The number of community pharmacies who provided the national NHS Flu Vaccination Service in 2015/16 was 7,195 (60.9% of all community pharmacies in England).

The average number of vaccinations carried out by each participating pharmacy was 83, although two contractors greatly exceeded this by completing over 1,000 vaccinations each.
