Influenza vaccines delayed

The Department of Health has written to NHS colleagues advising that some seasonal influenza vaccination deliveries have been delayed due to packing problems.

Surgeries are advised to contact their vaccine supplier to check if deliveries are expected in time and with sufficient stock to cover planned clinics in October. In the case where stocks will not be available in time, clinics will have to be rescheduled or alternative suppliers sought. However, at this late stage it is unlikely that alternative suppliers will be able to meet large demand increases.

Action: Clinicians should be aware of these delays and contact their suppliers regarding delivery schedules to assess the need for rearranging clinics.
