Seasonal Influenza Vaccination Figures
The NIO (National Immunisation Office) has released up to date figures showing the progress of the 2022/23 Influenza season in Community Pharmacy.
1,297 pharmacies have received influenza vaccines. Over 215,00 doses of QIV have been supplied. 1,069 pharmacies have received LAIV, with over 50,940 doses being delivered. We anticipate that demand for LAIV will increase during the mid-term break and would advise you to reflect this in your ordering for this cycle.
