Flu Vaccines

Flu Vaccines

We know that the 2018/19 flu season has been extremely challenging for our member practices because of the late NHS England policy change and the introduction of a new vaccine for your largest cohort.

That’s why we have made the decision to work with all four remaining flu vaccine companies for the 2019/20 season to ensure we are in a position to help our members no matter which supplier you decide to use next year. GSK and Pfizer will not be producing flu vaccines for the UK market for 2019/20 which leaves MASTA, Mylan, Sanofi and Seqirus.

Supplied by: MASTA, Mylan, Sanofi and Seqirus

2019-20 Offers

The Buying Group has negotiated discounts on all vaccines that are currently available to order as well as other terms such as sale or return, reserves, early delivery etc. We know that there have been concerns over having a sole supplier for vaccines for patients aged 65 and over and at this point in the season this is still the case.

However, please read the joint letter from Public Health England, NHS England and the Department of Health and Social Care (published 20 Nov 2018) for more information about new developments. We will send members regular updates as more information is released.

We appreciate that some practices have been particularly concerned about early deliveries to pharmacy ahead of general practice. Our suppliers have offered reassurances that all providers will be treated exactly the same next year. We suggest that you ask your flu vaccine supplier for the earliest date that you can receive and start your clinics as early as possible if you are concerned about competition from pharmacies. The earlier you order the more likely you are to be able to secure deliveries in your chosen week.

If you have already been provided with a quote by any vaccine company, please make sure they are using the October 2018 dispensing fee scales otherwise your quote will be 36p a dose out as the fees have increased by this much since last year and that you have been given our discount.

Since we released our offer information, Mylan has informed us that children aged 3-17 can now be given either of their quadrivalent vaccines
