The NHS flu vaccination service in 2022-23 will be offered to patient groups eligible in line with pre-pandemic recommendations, the NHS England and NHS Improvement (NHSE&I) stated in their flu vaccination reimbursement letter for the season.

As per the letter, people aged 50-64 and primary care staff will not be eligible for a free flu jab in the 2022-23 season.

It advised community pharmacy contractors to place orders with more than one manufacturer to ensure availability of sufficient stock.
