Influenza season 2022/23: Use of antiviral medicines in England

UKHSA surveillance data indicates that influenza is circulating in the community.

Prescribers working in primary care may now prescribe, and community pharmacists may now supply antiviral medicines (oseltamivir and zanamivir) for the prophylaxis and treatment of influenza at NHS expense. Antiviral medicines may be prescribed for patients in clinical at-risk groups as well as anyone at risk of severe illness and/or complications from influenza if not treated.

Further information can be found on the CAS website.
