Uptake of the vaccine among NHS staff was below the 50 per cent target in Wales last year. Health boards and trusts are encouraging staff to receive a quick, free and effective flu vaccine to protect themselves and others. Public Health Wales have developed a promotional video and e-learning course that flu leads can utilise to encourage staff to receive the flu vaccine.

E-learning course

This short e-learning course on the importance of flu vaccination is an excellent resource for flu leads to encourage staff to complete, and is available free of charge.  

To access the e-learning course, staff will need to enter the enrolment key for their health board. The enrolment key is available online for most health boards and trusts. If your health board or trust does not have an enrolment key, please contact Public Health Wales.

As further incentive, Public Health Wales will enter all staff that complete the course during November and December, into a prize draw for a £10 book voucher.

Promotional video

Public Health Wales' Vaccine Preventable Disease Programme has developed a video entitled 'Why would you not?' with support from staff at a Cardiff GP surgery. It examines the reasons why healthcare workers should be vaccinated and challenges common misconceptions.

The video is available in both Welsh and English and could be utilised in a number of ways, including screening in staff areas (for example, canteens), signposting via the intranet and be shown at staff or departmental meetings.

For further information on other ways to promote your local staff flu vaccination campaign, read our case studies on best practice or contact the team on 0844 334 52 52 or at flufighter@nhsemployers.org
