The 2 vaccines that are available to order for the 16-17 season are:

• Inactivated Influenza Vaccine (Split Virion) BP (TIV) – for children 6m - <3years who are contraindicated for Fluenz Tetra®

The intention is to apply the following controls to those accounts ordering for the GP part of the programme:

• In the first 4 weeks all customers will be able to order up to the national average uptake for 2 and 3 year olds in 2016 (40% of eligible    cohort). Requests for extra vaccine will be considered on a case by case basis.

• In the next 4 weeks, all practices will be able to order up to last year’s INDIVIDUAL uptake (or remain at 40% if individual uptake was lower).   Requests for extra vaccine will be considered on a case by case basis. • After these first 8 weeks all practices may order a maximum of 2      packs per week (one order per week). Requests for addition

Please be aware that these vaccines are being supplied in single dose packs.
