Extension of NHS seasonal influenza vaccination to include social care

22 November 2017

Further details of the scheme to extend the delivery of flu immunisation for social care workers that offer direct patient care can be found in this letter from NHS England.  

It has been confirmed that social care workers that offer direct patient/client care, working in England, are now eligible for free vaccination as part of the extension to the seasonal flu immunisation programme in 2017/18. The extension to this programme is designed to complement, not replace, existing immunisation schemes already in place across health and social care.
