Community pharmacy Local Enhanced Service Specification – phase 3 coronavirus vaccination

NHS England and NHS Improvement coronavirus have published a letter to community pharmacy announcing publication of the Local Enhanced Service Specification for phase 3 of the COVID-19 vaccination programme. There is also guidance on the Community Pharmacy phase 3 Expression of Interest and Site Designation process.

The Phase 3 service specification seeks to implement interim advice from JCVI on the potential COVID-19 booster programme. This advice suggests that the COVID-19 booster vaccines should be offered in two stages from September, starting with those most at risk from serious disease and that the seasonal flu vaccine should be offered alongside the third, booster dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Further details of the letter and specification for phase 3 of the COVID-19 vaccination programme can be found on the NHS website
