NHS England issued advice to general practitioners (GPs) and community pharmacists on 5 February 2018 on which influenza vaccines should be ordered for the adult seasonal flu programme (eligible individuals aged 18 years and over) in 2018/19. This advice was sent to ensure that GPs and community pharmacists order the most clinically effective vaccines for the coming season.
