flu fighter care

flu fighter

The flu fighter team has developed a range of new resources to support managers' flu vaccination campaigns in care settings.

The resources include guidance and campaign materials to encourage and educate staff to have the flu vaccination, thereby protecting people receiving care and support.
If you have any comments, queries or just want to update us on how your campaign is going then please email the flu fighter team.

Social care and hospice staff working in direct patient care could be eligible for a free flu vaccination. We've put together some FAQs on this on a handy leaflet that you can download and share with your staff.

Keep in touch on twitter @NHSFlufighter for all the latest flu updates and developments and join the conversation with #flufighter and #flufightercare.
