Abstract

Influenza is an important cause of morbidity in HIV positive adults, who may be more susceptible and more likely to develop severe disease.(1,2) Annual influenza immunisation is recommended for all HIV positive adults in the UK, supported by British HIV Association (BHIVA) guidelines,(1) with evidence for reasonably good uptake (3). HIV services do not receive specific funding to provide immunisation; and the National Flu Immunisation Programme offers this instead via Primary Care and pharmacies.(4) Whether this meets the needs of people living with HIV has not been evaluated.
