Additional Flu Vaccination Service Resources Published

Many pharmacy contractors and their teams will be starting to plan how they are going to provide the Flu Vaccination Advanced Service, which was announced in July. PSNC is continuing to add to the library of resources to support community pharmacy teams in preparing to deliver the service.

A PSNC Briefing has been published setting out the steps involved in offering and giving a flu vaccination. The briefing has been designed as a poster, which could be displayed in your consultation room as a reminder to pharmacy staff. It may also help pharmacy teams to think about the processes they will need to put in place to deliver the service smoothly and efficiently.

To assist with uniformity of patient communications, a social media tag has been agreed: #pharmacyflujabs. Please use this in all promotional tweets aimed at patients. PSNC will be tweeting about the latest information and resources for community pharmacy teams by using #getreadyforflu in tweets.

Lastly, the  Top tips to help you make the most of the national flu vaccination service article has been updated to include some additional pointers. This article will be updated from time to time, so sign up for PSNC’s email newsletters and follow PSNC and CPNY on Twitter to make sure you keep up to date.
