November vaccination uptake figures published

Flu bug

The second round of figures for flu vaccinations in front line care workers have been released by Public Health England. 

So far this flu season, a total of 533,389 front line care workers have been vaccinated for the flu virus. This accounts for 55.6 per cent of eligible healthcare workers in England. Already, this is our highest figure yet, surpassing last years final uptake figures of 50.6 per cent.

This is a fantastic achievement and is testament to the hard work that trusts are doing. The flu jab remains the best prevention against flu and vaccinating staff is the best way to protect them, their patients and families.
