Pharmacy flu vaccine service finder going live on NHS website

With a new community pharmacy flu vaccine service finder going live on the NHS website service finder webpage on 15 December, the PSNC is urging contractors to ensure their NHS website profile is up to date.

The digital tool will allow patients to find local pharmacies that provide the NHS commissioned service and check their eligibility. Since the NHS website profile displays whether a pharmacy offers flu vaccination, it should be updated if the service is no longer being offered because, for example, vaccine stocks are exhausted or unobtainable.

Registered website profile editors will receive an email confirming the launch of the tool, says the PSNC.

Separately, NHS England and Improvement (NHSE&I) is asking all primary care providers, including pharmacies, to complete a survey to find out how many frontline healthcare workers have had a flu vaccination this year.

The survey, which should be completed by 18 December, asks only two questions:

  1. How many staff with patient contact are currently working on your premises?
  2. How many staff have had a flu vaccine (since September 2020)?

The information submitted will help NHSE&I with their flu and Covid-19 vaccination planning for this year and next. A link to the survey was sent to all shared NHSmail accounts from survey@webhost.snapsurveys.com on 9 December, or it can be accessed directly online.
