Community pharmacy contractors will start receiving materials for the winter vaccines campaign via Royal Mail from today (November 8).

It is the second mandated health campaign for 2021/22 in which contractors must participate as part of their NHS contractual requirements, after the NHS England and NHS Improvement and Pharmaceutical Services Negotiating Committee (PSNC) reached an agreement.

The campaign pack, to be arrived in pharmacies, includes a briefing sheet; four A4 posters; one Q&A leaflet; and one A6 shelf wobbler along with social media and digital resources.

PSNC has also reminded contractors to have “an action plan” promote Covid-19 vaccinations, particularly in Black, Asian and minority ethnic and low uptake communities.

The move would help in addressing unwarranted variation in care domain of the 2021/22 Pharmacy Quality Scheme.

In case, contractors do not receive the campaign materials December 1, 2021, they should notify the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) through email.
