Services Database Community Pharmacy Influenza Vaccination Service (Bradford)

Service ID



Service Description

The agreement is for pharmacy staff to provide flu vaccination, where
appropriate, to Bradford council staff and staff working for Voluntary Community
Sector Organisations (VCS) on presentation of a valid council issued flu voucher

All BMDC employees and eligible VCS care provider staff will be encouraged to
attend the pharmacy for a vaccination by their managers. Pharmacies have the
option of arranging an off-site visit to a BMDC site to administer vaccinations to
eligible employees or to arrange with independent care providers to vaccinate
eligible employees at the provider’s premises. The Covid vaccination programme
has evidenced that take up of vaccinations is greater when vaccines are taken to
individuals and where they do not have to book in beforehand.
