Through no fault of ours, we are not getting delivery of the main bulk of flu jabs until 13th December. We have arranged mass flu vaccinating clinics from 15th December. We have now been told that any flu jabs given after the end of December cannot be claimed by our LHB (PCT). I would be interested to know if anyone else is experiencing similar problems. We have already been to the press with way the whole flu thing has been handled this year and it would now appear that the practices are not only being made scapegoats but being penalised financially.

I take it you had ordered your flu jabs from Glaxo. We did have the same problem, Glaxo should not have been delivering the bulk of ours until 13th Dec. In October we had a fax come through that a third party company could deliver. We went with this company and cancelled our Glaxo order. All our vaccines were delivered by the end of October.
