Flu PGD updated to allow pharm techs to administer vaccine

NHS England has approved the patient group direction to be used by community pharmacies during the September to March 2025 flu vaccination season.

This follows publication of the National Protocol for Inactivated Influenza Vaccine by the UK Health Security Agency.

Following last month’s change in legislation, the PGD has been updated so pharmacy technicians can now provide flu vaccinations via the flu PGD this coming season.

The publication of both documents follows updates to the flu service specification in response to the news that the Sanofi recombinant quadrivalent influenza vaccine (QIVr) will not be available for the 2024/25 flu programme.
