Coronavirus: Vaccination

Question for Department of Health and Social Care

UIN 102627, tabled on 12 January 2022

To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what recent discussions his Department has had with relevant stakeholders on future covid-19 vaccine immunisation programmes; and what assessment he has made of the potential merits of deploying covid-19 vaccines in parallel with the flu vaccine as a yearly injection.

Answered on

The Department, NHS England and NHS Improvement and the UK Health Security Agency regularly have discussions with stakeholders on a range of issues, including the vaccine deployment programme. Currently, we do not know if there will be a need for future COVID-19 vaccination campaigns and therefore whether the COVID-19 vaccine may be delivered annually in parallel with the flu vaccine.
