50 to 64-year-olds added to 2021/22 flu programme
People aged 50 to 64 are expected to be included as an eligible cohort in the 2021/22 flu vaccination programme, according to NHS England & Improvement's latest Primary Care Bulletin (March 24).
It advises that the flu reimbursement letter is currently being updated to reflect the inclusion and will be republished imminently.
Pharmacy providers are asked to await the updated flu reimbursement letter for more information, before amending their orders for vaccines.
The 50-64 age group was included for the first time in the 2020/21 programme as a measure to help reduce the impact of Covid-19.
