The National Flu Immunisation Programme 2020/21 - NHSE flu letter setting out eligible cohorts Annual 2020/21 flu season

20/21 DES specification 

Following on from the advice and guidance letter, there has been a further update from Public Health England (PHE) to clarify the position on vaccines for those aged 65 years and over and is as follows:-

JCVI advises the use of the following vaccines:

JCVI advise that the QIVc is considered preferable to standard egg-culture influenza vaccines (TIVe/QIVe).

The expectation is that practices should order the preferred vaccine - aTIV for this age group. QIVc is suitable and should be offered as an alternative when aTIV is not available.

LMC Buying Group 

2020-21 OFFERS

The Buying Group has negotiated discounts on all vaccines that are currently available to order as well as other terms such as sale or return, reserves, early delivery etc.

Our suppliers have offered reassurances that all providers will be treated exactly the same as far as deliveries are concerned next year. We suggest that you ask your flu vaccine supplier for the earliest date that you can receive and start your clinics as early as possible. The earlier you order the more likely you are to be able to secure deliveries in your chosen week.

If you have already been provided with a quote by any vaccine company, please make sure they are using the October 2019 dispensing fee scales otherwise your quote will be incorrect as the fees have reduced since last year and that you have been given our discount. If you have any questions about how to calculate PPD or discounts then please contact us.

Register or login to view the offers for 2020-21 as well as the more recent fee scales.

The Buying Group team is happy to help you with any queries you might have about the vaccines available for 2020-21, the PPD, discounts and other terms and any other issues you may be experiencing. Please note that we do not supply flu vaccines, you will still need to contact our approved flu vaccine suppliers directly to place your orders. If you have any queries about this, you can contact us on the number below.
