Flu vaccination data from PharmOutcomes and Sonar for 2021/22

The Excel document below contain information on the number of flu vaccinations administered as part of the community pharmacy Flu Vaccination Service 2021/22 which have been entered into the PharmOutcomes and Sonar systems.

Some contractors are unable to use or have decided not to use these electronic systems to record the administration of vaccines.
