Flu vaccination data from PharmOutcomes and Sonar for 2019/20

The Excel and PDF documents below contain information on the number of flu vaccinations administered as part of the community pharmacy Flu Vaccination Service 2019/20 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. Therefore the total number of vaccinations administered by community pharmacists under the national Flu Vaccination Service in 2019/20 will be higher than the number recorded in the Excel and PDF documents below.
