Delivery of the flu vaccine programme has begun, with priority given to those who are most at risk from the effects of flu, and frontline health and social care workers.

General practitioners and pharmacists are responsible for ordering flu vaccine from suppliers which are used to deliver the national flu programme to adults, with deliveries phased through the season. The Department has procured additional doses of seasonal flu vaccine to ensure more flu vaccines are available this winter.
