Building on the tried-and-tested routes used to deliver the flu vaccine, general practice will have an important role in the COVID-19 vaccination programme. NHS England will allocate £150 million through the General Practice Covid Capacity Expansion Fund, to support expanding general practice capacity up until the end of March 2021. The ambition is for general practices to remain open and accessible to all patients. However, we recognise that the additional workload associated with COVID-19 vaccine delivery may require prioritisation.
