Following a Statement of amendments to annual flu letter – 21 July 2022 - GOV.UK ( the following cohorts will now be eligible for the seasonal flu programme based on the advice of the JCVI and Department of Health and Social Care.

Those eligible for NHS flu vaccine in 2022/23 are:



The extension of the flu programme to those aged 50 to 64 years not in clinical risk groups, these groups will be eligible for vaccination from 15th October 2022, to ensure the clinical prioritisation of those most at risk from flu.

For general practice (GPs) and community pharmacy payment and reimbursement will be in line with the flu service specifications and within the announced authorised cohorts at the time of vaccination. The service specifications will be published shortly following negotiations.

Vaccination is recommended for frontline healthcare workers and social care workers. This should be provided by employers as part of the organisation’s policy to prevent the transmission of infection. There are circumstances where frontline staff employed by specific social care providers2 without access to employer led occupational health schemes can access the vaccine on the NHS.

The aim of the NHS flu vaccination programme for the 2022/23 season is to demonstrate a 100% offer and to achieve at least the uptake levels of 2021/22 for each cohort.
