The Community Pharmacy Seasonal Influenza Vaccination Advanced Service has been recommissioned for 2017/18. Terms and fees for the service are set out in Drug Tariff Part VIC and the Directions are published below:

Updated Seasonal influenza Directions (Enhanced and Advanced Services) (England) 2017

Updated Service Specification and Patient Group Direction (PGD) has been released and can be found here:

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 2017 and 31 March 2018, you must register your pharmacy’s details with NHS England first. If you registered to provide the service in 2016/17, you must still register again for 2017/18.

If you register before 1 September 2017 you must not administer any vaccinations until 1 September 2017.

If the notification to the NHSBSA is not received prior to payment claims being submitted they will not be processed or paid as the requirement to notify the NHSBSA, set out in the Pharmaceutical Services (Advanced and Enhanced Services) (England) (Amendment) Directions, will have been breached.

Register your pharmacy as a provider of the service

If you choose to stop offering the service at any point before 31 March 2018, you must inform NHS England by de-registering.

De-register your pharmacy as a provider of the service
