Purpose and outline
The aim of the seasonal influenza and pneumococcal polysaccharide immunisation ES is to protect those most at risk by offering protection against the most prevalent strains of influenza virus, and against 23 serotypes of S. pneumoniae.
Where a practice agrees to participate in this ES, they are expected to deliver vaccinations to eligible patients for both the seasonal influenza and pneumococcal vaccination programmes. The arrangements to deliver this ES supersede any previous local agreements.
