PHARMAC is consulting on a proposal to fund a free flu vaccine to people 65 years and over and pregnant women in community pharmacies from 1 April 2017. This would mean that these people would be able to choose to get their funded vaccine from their general practice or pharmacy. Pharmacies would be able to claim an administration fee and funded vaccine for those eligible. You may also like to comment on whether access to funded flu vaccine should be available through other providers/services.
