NHS England and NHS Improvement (NHSE&I) have published several documents for community pharmacy contractors relating to the COVID-19 vaccination programme. The documents will be of interest to contractors that are considering whether they may be able to participate in the programme, by operating a vaccination site, where this is agreed by NHSE&I.
