Vaccine ordering for the 2018-19 influenza season

You will be aware of the confusion that has surrounded the guidance published by the JCVI on Flu Vaccines for the 2018/19 season. We have now received the latest guidance from NHSE via the GPC:

Please see attached the letter on vaccine ordering for 2018-19 influenza season, due to be published imminently on the NHS England website .

It recommends the use of the adjuvanted trivalent vaccine (aTIV) for all 65s and over, and the quadrivalent vaccine (QIV) for 18 – under 65s at risk and the deadline for ordering has been extended until 29 March 2018.

If necessary, practices should switch to the more effective vaccine, and suppliers have agreed to keep the same prices as previously agreed.
