Dentists are eligible for a free flu vaccine through occupational health arrangements made by their employer. Flu vaccination is recommended for all frontline healthcare workers who have direct contact with patients and service users. Employers should commission a service which makes access easy for all frontline staff, encourage staff to get vaccinated and monitor the delivery of their programmes.
