Public Health England has today (16 February) reported that a total of 600,698 frontline healthcare workers have been vaccinated for the flu virus so far this season.

The results, which are measured from 1 September until 31 January, account for 63 per cent of eligible healthcare workers in England. This is the highest figure yet both in percentage and total numbers vaccinated, surpassing the 2014/15 end of season figures where a total 541,090 frontline (54.9 per cent) staff got vaccinated.

Once again, NHS Employers would like to congratulate NHS trusts on all the hard work they have put into their flu fighter campaigns.
