Public Health England has reported the final set of flu figures for this season, which show that more than 541,000 frontline staff (54.9 per cent) were vaccinated between 1 September 2014 and 28 February 2015. 

This is testament to the strength of impressive local flu campaigns around the country that have increased awareness and uptake despite winter pressures and challenging times within the service. 

Highlights of the report show that:

  • 142 trusts vaccinated over half of their staff
  • 35 trusts vaccinated 75 per cent or more of their staff
  • 113 trusts exceeded the 2013/14 final average of 54.8 per cent
  • 123 trusts improved their uptake compared to the same period of 2013/14

The figures complement the statistics released from Public Health Wales which showed that Wales vaccinated nearly 25,000 frontline staff in the same period. See the figures for Wales.
