There is sufficient COVID-19 vaccine supply to meet expected demand during the spring campaign. To minimise waste during the first four weeks, weekly site-level allocations will be made based on expected demand profiles with an additional buffer. This equates to additional supply being made available to cover at least 130% of the expected demand in the first week, on top of existing stock already available in the network. Only sites that have completed a stock check within the last seven days will be able to place orders against their allocation.
Currently, all sites have the opportunity to request additional allocation via their system on submission of supporting evidence. Additional requests will be rejected if there is a risk of over supplying against expected demand. These can be submitted on a weekly basis to meet changes in demand. Max caps are set in the system until w/c 4 April inclusive
