Flu vaccination programme for front line social care staff
All frontline health and social care staff are eligible for a FREE flu vaccination this year. There is no national shortage of the flu vaccine, there are enough doses for 30 million people to be vaccinated in England.
This season, early demand for flu vaccine has also been higher than usual due to concerns about the coronavirus pandemic. This means that some GP practices and pharmacies will have to ask people to wait until they receive further deliveries.
At present people who are more at risk from flu are being prioritised, including people with long-term health conditions.
You will be able to access your free vaccination via your GP or Pharmacy, and bookings will open again shortly when additional stock becomes available.
Please fill out this simple form to access a letter confirming your eligibility for the vaccine.
