Flublock Quadrivalent influenza vaccine patient update

Due to unprecedented demand for flu immunisations this year we have been supplied with a vaccine called “Flublock” by the DHSC.

This flu immunisation product does not have a UK marketing authorisation, and so is being offered to you “off license”.

But it

  • has been deemed suitable for use in the UK by the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) in this year’s seasonal flu programme to meet public health need for persons 18 years of age and older
  • has been given authorisation for temporary supply by the UK Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) and the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) for immunisation against influenza in the UK under regulation 174 and 174A of HMR2012.
  • licensed for use in the USA by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA)

Please be assured it meets all safety standards and is extremely effective. It has been used for many years in USA and other countries worldwide.
