NHS Flu Vaccination Service specification for 2024/25

Read the annual flu letter for 2024/25

The Department of Health and Social Care, the UK Health Security Agency and NHS England have jointly published the national flu vaccination programme letter for the 2024/25 season.

There are no changes to the eligible cohorts for the 2024/25 season and no changes recommended by JCVI for adult flu vaccines for 2024/2025. However, from 1st September 2024, pharmacies will only be able to vaccinate pregnant women. Then from October 2024, vaccination of the other adult cohorts will commence, with the exact starting date to be confirmed by NHS England in due course.

The PGD and national protocol are expected to be published closer to the commencement date for the service once JCVI guidance has been considered.
