PHA Update on Vaccine supply and Rationalisation

To provide fair distribution of the remaining vaccine stock, caps based on practice populations are being applied.  Orders over the caps below will need approval by PHA. Please email: [email protected].  PHA will aim to deal with your request by end of the next working day.

The most recent information available for the vaccines is:

·         QIVe (for adults under 65).  We expect practices to be able to order from 23rd November 2020.  Once the new stock arrives a quota based on practice population will be used for each practice.

·         aTIV (for those aged 65 and over). A cap based on 70% of practice population aged 65 or over has been applied.  For those practices which have ordered under 70% the previous limit of 20 doses per order has been removed.  Practices who have already ordered more than 70% will not currently be able to order additional aTIV.

·         LAIV (for children)  A cap based on 90% of practice population aged 2-4 years has been applied.  For those practices which have ordered under 90% the previous limit of 10 doses per order has been removed.  Practices who have already ordered more than 90% will not currently be able to order additional LAIV.
