71.1% Increase in Flu Jabs

Community Pharmacies have had another record year administering flu vaccinations and keeping more people than ever safe this winter from flu. The total flu vaccinations administered in North Yorkshire were 11,220, a 71.1% increase on last year’s numbers of 6,595.

As a result of this success, the NHS has announced it will be commissioning the service again starting on the 1st September 2017 through to 31st March 2018. In doing so the NHS is acknowledging the essential role that community pharmacies play in delivering flu vaccinations, which is due to easy access and in many cases no appointment is needed.
