The UK now has a differentiated influenza immunisation programme with different vaccines being advised for different risk groups. Currently, the various vaccines are differentiated by age, but in the future may also be differentiated by risk group. General practice nurses (GPNs) need to understand how these various influenza vaccines differ, what are their advantages in terms of the increased protection they offer to patients, and, in turn, be able to explain these advantages to patients.
