2005 Influenza Immunisation Programme

The Department of Health has released details of the 2005 Influenza Vaccination Programme. This year will see the addition of a further two groups of patients who should be offered the vaccination. These are:

  • People with chronic liver disease
  • People who are the main carer for an elderly or disabled person whose welfare would be put at risk if the carer falls ill

The release of this information has prompted several requests for the update Patient Group Direction (PGD) for Influenza Vaccinations. The PGD will be made available as soon as we are able to obtain the required information from the manufacturers of the vaccinations, this is likely to be September.

Action: The PGD will be disseminated as soon as it is complete following the release of information about this years influenza vaccination products. Until the PGD is released any influenza vaccinations must be administered with a Patient Specific Direction (or Prescription). As the vaccinations are as yet unavailable, this situation will cause not problems.
