Flu Vaccinations

Flu Vaccinations for Care Workers - Get yours NOW - Free of charge!

The Care Providers Alliance has campaigned for free flu jabs for social care workers.  Free flu vaccinations for care home staff will act as a welcome preventative measure protecting both employees and vulnerable people.

See extract from the letter sent to The Care Procers Alliance below:

"We are pleased to confirm that last week NHS England announced that for this winter they will expand the GP and national pharmacy influenza vaccination service so that paid care workers in the independent and voluntary social care sector are also able to access the flu vaccine via local GPs and pharmacies free of charge. This will supplement the existing responsibility of employers of these staff to ensure that they are vaccinated.

Flu immunisation should be provided to social care staff employed in England by a registered residential care home, registered nursing home or registered domiciliary care provider who are directly involved in the care of vulnerable patients/clients who are at increased risk of exposure to influenza, as identified in the Seasonal Influenza Directed Enhanced Service and the Green Book."
