Description: To extend the current flu programme to children aged two to less than 17 years as part of DH legal obligations, under the 2010 NHS Constitution.
DCA (RAG): Amber/Green
DCA text: Three seasons of successful programme roll-out have taken place including implementation in primary schools. This experience and planning for the programme for the forthcoming season have demonstrated that the programme is now becoming established. In addition to the children already offered vaccination each year, the 2016/17 season will see flu vaccine offered to children in primary schools in year 3 for the first time. Planning has been completed and delivery partners are prepared. We expect vaccine supply to be in place in time to meet GP and school schedules and planning is underway to put a contract in place for vaccine up to 2021/22.
Start date: 2013-09-03
End date: 2018-09-01
Schedule text: The programme continues to roll out in line with planning, which is currently up to 2021/22. Ministerial approval has been gained for these plans.
Baseline: £78.90m
Forecast: £78.90m
Variance: 0.00%
Variance text: Budget variance less than 5%
Whole Life Cost: £318.81m
WLCost text: The budgeted whole life cost covers each year of the programme including rollout to all primary school years, i.e. up to and including year 6. The figure is informed by birth rate figures, uptake rates, the vaccine price and the costs of administration (which is commissioned by NHS England). The existing vaccine contract provides for vaccine for the 2017/18 season and the new contract vaccine price may affect future costs.
