Influenza immunisation programme 2010/11 amendment

The Chief Medical Officer at the Department of Health has reissued (PDF) an amended to colleagues within the NHS to provide details of the recommended influenza immunisation programme for 2010/11.

The letter has been reissued to correct an error around the age below which children that have not previously received a seasonal influenza vaccine should receive two doses of vaccine. The advice set out in the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) statement and the professional letter is for those under 12 years of age but the previous influenza Green Book chapter indicates below 13 years of age (as in previous years).

Action: Clinicians should be aware of this amendment and assess if the changes impact on planning to date.
