Flu: Updated PGD and Protocol Published

Flu: Updated PGD and Protocol Published

November 12, 2021

Following the announcement of additional funding to support provision of flu vaccinations to frontline primary care staff, NHS England and NHS Improvement (NHSE&I) have approved the patient group direction (PGD) and national protocol for use by community pharmacy contractors, meaning vaccination of these staff as part of the service can now commence.

Contractors must keep a manual record of the number of primary care staff they vaccinate in the service and report this data each month on the Manage Your Service (MYS) portal in a new module, which will be linked to from the main MYS flu vaccination module. PSNC has published a tally chart for contractors to use to keep count of the number of staff from each primary care setting that they have vaccinated.
