To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what recent discussions his Department has had with relevant stakeholders on future covid-19 vaccine immunisation programmes; and what assessment he has made of the potential merits of deploying covid-19 vaccines in parallel with the flu vaccine as a yearly injection.

The Department, NHS England and NHS Improvement and the UK Health Security Agency regularly have discussions with stakeholders on a range of issues, including the vaccine deployment programme. Currently, we do not know if there will be a need for future COVID-19 vaccination campaigns and therefore whether the COVID-19 vaccine may be delivered annually in parallel with the flu vaccine.
