GPs can now order a single flu vaccine for all adults, says NHS England

Comment

Has PHE heard about antigenic drift? the 2017/2018 vaccine, and event eh 2018/19 one are UNUNSUITABLE for the 2019/20 season, and a new vaccine is usually developed annually to cover the new strains circulating. I can no longer recommend the available flu vaccines to my patients. I hope someone from PHE or PHW sees this and fixes the HUGE PROBLEM they have now caused!
