Community Pharmacy Seasonal Influenza Vaccination Advanced Service
As part of the 2015/16 community pharmacy funding settlement NHS England has agreed to allow community pharmacies in England to offer a seasonal influenza (flu) vaccination service for patients in at-risk groups.
This service will be the fifth Advanced Service in the English Community Pharmacy Contractual Framework (CPCF) and will commence in September 2015.
The service can be provided by any community pharmacy in England that has a consultation room, can procure the vaccination and meet the data recording requirements, as well as having appropriately trained staff.
