DHSC flu vac stock: use for private patients

DHSC flu vac stock: use for private patients

January 14, 2021

The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) has confirmed that from tomorrow (15th January 2021), community pharmacies can offer a flu vaccination using DHSC centrally procured vaccine to private patients or those within occupational health schemes (Group C patients in the DHSC guidance on use of centrally procured vaccines). This decision follows PSNC’s request to DHSC for such a change in the guidance.

Contractors are advised to continue to provide flu vaccinations for NHS eligible cohorts, as some patients may still present later in the season, such as the 50-64 year old cohort and newly pregnant women.
