If your patients have any specific questions on the vaccine not covered by the MSE website (such as interactions with regular medication or a diagnosis, allergies, booking a second dose a vaccine or concerns about vaccination) they can email epunft.askpharmacy@nhs.net – the address is monitored Monday – Friday by our Medicines Optimisation team on behalf of EPUT.
