To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what assessment his Department has made of the opportunities to provide other adult vaccinations alongside the flu programme to maximise every contact with a patient and decrease pressure on the NHS by avoiding multiple visits by vulnerable people.

The Department is working with colleagues at NHS England and NHS Improvement, and Public Health England on the delivery of the 2020/21 seasonal flu vaccination programme. The operational plans for flu include consideration of the requirements of vulnerable people, the workforce and providers, with respect to current social distancing measures, and the potential impact on other vaccination programmes. We continually assess opportunities to improve access to all vaccinations. This includes whether other adult vaccination can be delivered alongside flu vaccination where possible.
