Influenza: Vaccination

Question for Department of Health and Social Care

UIN 50707, tabled on 16 September 2021

To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, whether he has plans to retain covid-19 vaccination hubs to assist in the administration of the flu vaccine.

Some vaccination hubs may be used for co-administration of the flu and COVID-19 vaccinations this winter. Co-administration is likely to happen on a small scale in health and social care settings, but the flu vaccination will be promoted alongside the COVID-19 booster programme in the 2021/22 season to ensure maximum uptake.
