In May, NHS England announced that the Community Pharmacy Seasonal Influenza Vaccination Advanced Service will be recommissioned for 2016/17. Terms and fees for the service are set out in Part VIC of the Drug Tariff.
The service can be provided by any community pharmacy in England, provided that it:
- has a consultation room
- can procure the vaccination
- can meet the data recording requirements
- has appropriately trained staff.
Register to provide the service
If you intend to provide the service between 1 September 2016 and 31 March 2017, you must register your pharmacy’s details with NHS England first. If you registered to provide the service in 2015/16, you must still register again for 2016/17.
If you choose to stop offering the service at any point before 31 March 2017, you must inform NHS England by de-registering.
Submit a claim for payment
Once you have registered your pharmacy, you can claim reimbursement for the vaccinations you administer and the associated fees by completing the form below. Please make sure you use the correct version of the form (V3) from the link below to avoid risking any delays in payment.
You will need to complete a form for every month in which you have administered vaccinations, and include the completed form in your monthly submission to NHS Prescription Services.
