The Scottish Government does direct territorial NHS Boards (PCA(M)(2018)06) to make the following payments where influenza vaccinations are delivered through independent General Practitioners.
Where patients are aged 65 and over:
- If up to or equal to 40% of the over age 65 group who are on a contractor’s influenza register has been immunised, a GP contractor will qualify for a payment of £7.17 per immunisation;
- If more than 40% and up to or equal to 75% of the age group has been immunised, a contractor will qualify for a payment of £8.85 per immunisation;
- If more than 75% of the age group has been immunised, the contractor will qualify for £9.39 per immunisation. (These different payment rates apply to all immunisations given, not just those above the threshold.)
Where patients are in other target groups a flat fee of £7.67 will be paid per immunisation.
For children, GPs are paid a flat rate of £7.67 per dose totaling £15.34 per course, where two doses are needed (at risk children under 9 years of age who have never received influenza vaccination, and healthy children under 9 years of age who have never received influenza vaccination and require the injected, inactivated vaccine).
An additional fee of £2.12 will be paid per immunisation for primary school age children who were not vaccinated during their local school immunisation session.
