NHS Improvement and NHS England wrote to National Health Service trusts and foundation trusts on 7 February 2018 to provide advice on which influenza vaccine NHS providers should order for frontline healthcare workers in the 2018/19 season. This advice was sent to ensure that NHS providers order the most clinically effective vaccine for the coming season. A copy of the letter is attached.

A further flu letter will be issued prior to the flu season reiterating this advice and providing additional information on flu vaccination for frontline healthcare workers.
