Flu Vaccine Update

You will no doubt have heard in the media this morning, that those age 50-64 will be able to receive a flu vaccine from 1/12/20. General practices are learning this information at the same time as you.

Practices are doing all they can to prepare and source vaccines, they will be in contact with patients as soon as they are able. In the meantime please do not contact your surgery about flu vaccines if you are in this group until you are asked to do so.”

We are as frustrated as you that DHSC now appear to use the media as their main method of communicating such important information with general practice. The only other update we have received today is that they will be updating the guidance on accessing the DHSC Vaccine stocks but there is no indication yet, when that update might be shared with the people that actually need it!
