NHS England confirm details of 'Flu immunisation schemeNHS England confirm details of 'Flu immunisation scheme

NHS England has confirmed that the seasonal influenza vaccine scheme has been extended to cover social care workers (including homecare workers). A confirmation of the extension has been circulated by NHS England in an open letter to care providers.

NHS England has advised UKHCA that the scheme is open already.

Any pharmacy participating in the NHS community pharmacy flu vaccination service can offer immunisation to social care workers. Some GPs may offer vaccination for social care workers who are already registered at the practice, but it is recommended that people confirm with the surgery in advance.

To get vaccinated, care workers will need to bring a form of identification which includes both their name and the name of their employer. This could be an ID badge, a recent pay slip or a letter from their employer.
