Changes to Pneumovax®23 (Pneumococcal Polysaccharide Vaccine, PPV23) - supply route


There will be a change to the supply route of Pneumococcal Polysaccharide Vaccine (PPV) from 1 June.  In line with other national immunisation programmes, PHE will supply this vaccine for the routine immunisation programme and immunisation of those with underlying medical conditions from 1 June 2021, rather than providers locally procuring the vaccine.  From this date, the vaccine will be available to order from PHE’s ImmForm website. Please ensure you have an account to enable access. Details of ordering controls will be made available on ImmForm news item in due course. See the ImmForm helpsheet for information on registering for an ImmForm account. More information is available in this published letter
