Flu Vaccination Advanced Service

The 2021/22 service commenced from 1st September 2021. See the PSNC Flu Vaccination Hub here for information about the service including the latest news and updates. 


Recommended Vaccines for 2021/22 

On 1st April 2021 NHSE&I published updated guidance on flu vaccines for 2021/22 – see here.

This guidance, and the annual flu letter for 2021/22, outline the vaccines agreed for use for the 2021/22 flu progamme.

In summary the recommended vaccines are: 

  • For those aged 65 years and over – the adjuvanted quadrivalent influenza vaccine (aQIV), with the cell-based quadrivalent influenza vaccine (QIVc) or the recombinant quadrivalent influenza vaccine (QIVr) offered if aQIV is unavailable. 
  • For under-65s (including those at risk, pregnant women and 50 to 64 year old cohort) - QIVc or QIVr, as an alternative if these are not available, the egg-grown quadrivalent influenza vaccine (QIVe) should be considered for use

Claiming Payment

All payments must be claimed monthly via the NHSBSA Manage Your Service (MYS) portal. See the NHSBSA animation on how to submit your flu vaccination claim on MYS.

PharmOutcomes will be able to pre-populate claim information in MYS each month, so that the contractor then just needs to login to MYS at the start of the following month to confirm that the information is correct and then to submit the claim.

Claims for the 2021/22 flu season will be accepted by the NHSBSA within six months of administration of the vaccination or by 31st August 2022, whichever date is earlier, in accordance with the usual Drug Tariff claims process. Later claims will not be processed. Payments to contractors will be made monthly as part of their normal payment schedule.

See PSNC page on claiming payments here if further information is required.

 

 

Flu Collaboration

Community Pharmacy West Yorkshire regularly contacts the Local Medical Committees (LMCs) within West Yorkshire, and as in previous years, we have offered to collaborate with the LMCs in producing a joint LMC LPC flu letter to encourage general practices and community pharmacies to work together in supporting each other’s flu campaign.

 
The joint letters agreed for 2021/22 are below.  Letters for the other areas within West Yorkshire will also be added as these are agreed in due course.
