Community pharmacy toolkit: Delivering an open access vaccination clinic


A new toolkit provides guidance and resources to help pharmacy teams to deliver open access COVID-19 and flu vaccination clinics this winter.

Developed jointly by Doctors of the World (DOTW), the National Pharmacy Association (NPA) and NHS England and NHS Improvement, it seeks to help community pharmacies ensure winter vaccines are accessible to everyone, including thousands of carers and people from vulnerable groups, who often face barriers when accessing “mainstream” healthcare, resulting in poor health outcomes. For example, people who might not have an NHS number, refugees, asylum seekers and people who are experiencing homelessness.
