GPs requested to offer flu vaccination to all patients with learning disabilities

GP practices will be paid to offer vaccination to anyone on their QOF register with a learning disability, irrespective of the existence of other long term conditions.

The confidential inquiry into the premature deaths of people with learning disability (2013) found respiratory disease to be a disproportionately high cause of amenable death in comparison to the general population. The flu plan has been updated in response to these findings and subsequent recommendations.
