Funding for the 2020/21 Flu Vaccination Advanced Service has been announced:
The fee per vaccination will remain at £9.58, however for this year only it has been also agreed that:
- £0.50 per vaccination will be paid, funded from the Transition Fund; and
- up to £1m of medicines margin can be retained for flu vaccinations administered above the number in a normal year. This will be in addition to the allowed £800 million medicines margin under the Community Pharmacy Contractual Framework.
This means the combined value of fees paid per vaccination will be £10.08. As is normally the case, contractors will also be reimbursed for the vaccine costs at the basic price (list price) of the individual vaccine administered and an allowance at the applicable VAT rate will also be paid.
For more details, including additional funding for off-site provisions, please visit the PSNC website.
