Dental contractors may take part in the Seasonal Flu immunization programme

This letter from the Scottish Government Primary Care Directorate advises NHS Boards of the possible role for NHS dental contractos in the flu vaccination programme for 2020/21.

Health Boards and Integration Authorities will take the lead role in providing the flu immunisation programme for 2020/21. As part of these arrangements, Boards are advised that NHS dental contractors may have the capacity to opt in and to contribute to the vaccination programme.

This means that dental practices may be contacted by their Health Board about possible participation in the programme.
