It further said that people will receive the flu and Covid-19 vaccinations in parallel.

Health secretary Matt Hancock on Friday said that the NHS would be supported with whatever resources it would require for a successful Covid-19 vaccine roll-out programme.

"More vaccine is flowing into Global Positioning System and pharmacies throughout the next few months, and I would urge anyone eligible for their flu vaccine to get one, including all health and social care workers".

Under the new direct enhanced service (DES), practices are expected to work together as part of primary care network (PCN) "groupings" to deliver the programme and were required to jointly nominate a designated site for administering vaccinations from by 17 November.

The UK has ordered 40 million doses of the Pfizer Covid vaccine, of which 10 million doses are expected to be available before the end of the year.

"To prepare for this challenging winter, we committed to protect as many people as possible from the flu, to keep those at risk safe and reduce the strain on our NHS", said public health minister Jo Churchill. "More vaccine is flowing into Global Positioning System and pharmacies throughout the next few months, and I would urge anyone eligible for their flu vaccine to get one including all health and social care workers". "I urge all those who are eligible for the flu vaccine, including the new group of 50-64 year olds, to book their appointments as soon as they can".
