Community pharmacists in England administered 950,765 flu vaccinations to patients under the national NHS flu vaccination service in 2016/17.

The NHS Business Services Authority has published a report detailing the community pharmacy contractors who signed up to provide the service, as well as the NHS England area, vaccines administered, and drug and fee costs.

In the period covered by the report 8,451 community pharmacies or 71.2% of all those in England took part in the scheme.

The average number of vaccinations carried out by each participating pharmacy was 113, although one contractor completed over 1,000 vaccinations.
