ACB medication review tools

Flu Vaccine Update from Seqirus

12 September 2018

A statement has been released by flu vaccine provider Seqirus regarding the adjuvanted Trivalent flu vaccine for over 65’s:

The burden of influenza in older adults is significant and the JCVI and NHS has recommended FLUAD as the best option to protect this vulnerable population.
We have processed more than 8,500 orders for FLUAD from practices and pharmacies across the UK, totaling almost 9.3 million doses. Based on previously reported influenza vaccination rates for people aged 65 years and older, there will be sufficient quantities of FLUAD available across the UK to vaccinate this vulnerable population.

We experienced some processing challenges due to the sudden high volume of orders, however we believe the majority of these issues have been resolved.
Due to strong global demand for FLUAD this year, we have been unable to secure additional doses of FLUAD, however we understand the NHS will soon be providing guidance for any providers who do not have stock.

September deliveries of FLUAD® have commenced and we are on track to meet the timetable for October and November deliveries as communicated to GP practices and pharmacies.
We thank all GPs and Pharmacies for their understanding and cooperation as we worked to introduce this enhanced vaccine in the UK as quickly and as smoothly as possible.

Ordering for the 19/20 season will start shortly, which will enable Seqirus to complete an accurate production forecast in January for the supply of all doses required in the UK by September.
