ABSTRACT
The influenza immunisation season of 2020/21 was very challenging for practice nurses involved in delivering the programme. The main challenge was delivering the programme while coping with the difficulties of ensuring venues and practices were operating safely with the aim of reducing the risk of transmission of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. There has been comprehensive guidance from the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC), Public Health England (PHE) and the Royal Colleges to support vaccination providers this year. Additionally, the vaccination programme was expanded to include more patients who are at risk of severe disease from influenza and SARS-CoV-2. This expanded programme is likely to continue in 2021/22 and guidance and directives on influenza vaccines for use in the programme are expected soon.
