Swine Flu: Vaccination

Volume 497: debated on Thursday 22 October 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Health pursuant to the answer of 12 October 2009, Official Report, column 765W, on swine flu, who will receive payment for giving housebound patients vaccinations; how much will be paid for each such vaccination; and from which budget. (294115)

[holding answer 19 October 2009]: General practitioner practices will receive £5.25 for each dose of swine flu vaccination administered to patients on their registered list who fall into one or more of the clinically at-risk priority groups announced by the Chief Medical Officer on 13 August 2009. This includes housebound patients who are on their list. The price per dose reflects the overall cost practices will incur in vaccinating their at-risk patients. The Department will provide additional funding to cover the cost of vaccinating patients in these priority groups.
