Seasonal Flu Campaign 2020-2021

In view of the risk of co-circulation of seasonal flu and Covid-19 this winter, the 2020/21 national flu campaign will be essential in protecting our vulnerable patients and reducing clinical workload due to flu.

The following information is intended as a living guide for the seasonal flu vaccination programme for 2020/21, taking into account the additional complexities of delivering a programme during a pandemic and includes national and local changes to the flu programme. It will be updated as required.
