The LPC flu team has been working behind the scenes with local commissioners to ensure that vaccinations can start from the 1st of September via locally commissioned service in case the national service has been delayed however we have not had final confirmations yet. Please keep an eye on your email / twitter / facebook feeds for further information. As soon as we have information regarding either the national service or the locally commissioned service we inform. Until then unfortunately you will not be able to start vaccinating.
As flu season approaches, we are writing to all practices and pharmacies to summarise this year’s programme and to emphasise the importance of maximising uptake of seasonal flu vaccine in eligible groups. We hope you find the attached briefing useful.
