Regulations increasing the vaccination fees payable to GPs under the General Medical Services contract by 28% have come into effect. In addition, the regulations have been updated to amend the schedule for routine childhood vaccinations.

Although only added to Department of Health guidance on GMS directions last week, the General Medical Services Statement of Financial Entitlements (Amendment No. 2) Directions 2016 have effect from April 1 2016.

Under the directions, the fee increases from £7.64 to £9.80 as payment for administration of the following:

  • rotavirus vaccines;
  • MMR vaccines for persons aged 16 or over;
  • Hepatitis B vaccination for babies.

The table setting out the immunisation schedule has been updated to reflect aspects including the cessation of the meningitis C dose at three months from July 1 2016.
