SAVE ITEM
Leaflet

Public Health England has today (16 March) reported that a total of 618,275 frontline healthcare workers have been vaccinated against flu this season. 

This translates to 63.4 per cent uptake for frontline healthcare workers in England, from 1 September until 28 February. These are record breaking figures, surpassing all expectations this year.

Summary

It's been hard work for everyone involved in the flu fighter campaign, and from looking at the data we can see how these efforts have had an impact on uptake:

  • nine out of ten trusts (88 per cent) have increased uptake from last season
  • one in two trusts (51 per cent) has an uptake of 65 per cent or above
  • One in three trusts (34.6% per cent) has an uptake of over 75 per cent
