Seasonal 'flu update

The Department of Health has written to healthcare professionals to provide an update (PDF) of the current situation regarding the seasonal influenza campaign for 2008/09.

The update states that there are currently no known problems with vaccine production this year, however it is recommended that individual surgeries confirm delivery schedules before starting to book clinics.

The update also advises that supporting materials will be available again this year and that order forms will be distributed later this year. Finally, the update encourages greater focus upon targeting under 65 clinical risk groups in order to achieve an improvement in overall vaccination rates.

Action: Clinicians involved in the delivery of influenza vaccination clinics should be aware of the current production situation to allow for clinic planning.
