NHS Pharmacy Flu Service 2022/23

NHSE&I letter on flu vaccines for 2022/23

NHSE&I have published their flu vaccination reimbursement letter for the 2022/23 season.

The letter provides information on the flu vaccines which will be reimbursable under the 2022/23 Community Pharmacy Seasonal Influenza Vaccination Advanced Service (Flu Vaccination Service), for the two cohorts (65 years and over and at-risk adults aged 18-64).

While the reimbursable vaccines for the coming season remain unchanged, there are changes to the first line vaccination recommendations.

The letter also highlights that in 2022/23, the NHS flu vaccination programme will only be offered to patient groups eligible in line with pre-pandemic recommendations.

The cohorts relevant to the community pharmacy service that were eligible in the 2021/22 season but that are not included in the cohorts for 2022/23 are those aged 50 to 64 years and primary care staff.
