Community pharmacy teams in England have broken all previous records by a distance and delivered nearly five million flu jabs in the past season.

They have administered over 2.08 million more flu vaccinations under the national programme during 2021-22 than the previous year, which is a a 75 increase, the Pharmaceutical Services Negotiating Committee has reported.

According to latest data published by the NHS Business Services Authority in its Advanced Service Flu report community pharmacy has administered 4.85 million vaccinations under the national Flu Vaccination Service in 2021-22.

The total number of vaccines administered in community pharmacies in 2020-21 was 2.77 million.

Commenting on the end-of-season figures, PSNC chief executive Janet Morrison said: “I am thoroughly impressed to hear it confirmed that community pharmacy has had another record-breaking year of flu vaccination provision. The ability of pharmacy teams to deliver the healthcare services that communities need, despite the challenges and pressures this winter, is simply phenomenal.

“I would like to thank all our community pharmacy contractors and their teams for the enormous efforts that went in to achieving these results.”
