Flu Vaccine Eligibility Calculator & Vaccine Poster

As most of you are already aware, this year, three types of flu vaccine will be used in the adult flu programme. This will benefit patients by ensuring that they have the most suitable vaccine that gives them the best protection against flu. To assist registered practitioners in selecting the appropriate vaccine, a vaccine eligibility calculator has been developed by NES to aid staff during service delivery.

 

The calculator can be accessed directly via the following NES
