Pharmacy leaders back call for staff to have voluntary flu jab

September 23, 2020

Sussex and Surrey LPCs are supporting the Health and Social Care Workers Flu Immunisation Campaign, which aims to boost uptake of the jab among staff who work in key frontline roles. 

Chief executive James Wood, said: “We are strongly encouraging all community pharmacy staff to get a flu vaccine this autumn unless they have been advised against it for medical reasons. 

“Immunisation for seasonal flu is an important part of keeping staff and patients safe and preventing transmission.

“But more than that, the pressures of restarting suspended services, meeting Covid rehabilitation needs and the possibility of further local spikes or a second national wave of Covid mean that winter pressures on community pharmacies are likely to be particularly acute this year, so we each need to do what we can to maintain continuity of services”, he added.

Sheets of 24 stickers are available. Tell us how many you need. This sheet has 48.

***FREE*** We have stickers for all pharmacy staff across Sussex and Surrey to wear to show they have had their flu jab. There’s 24 on each sheet so enough for everyone in the team, (with a replacement, or two!).

You could even give them to carers, and other health workers too, when they receive their jab from you.
