A GP online survey has revealed that two thirds of GPs have been vaccinated against flu this season. 

This is a great step in helping to prevent the spread of flu as GPs are often in contact with the most vulnerable to the flu. The vaccine reduces the risk of passing the flu between patients. By GPs having their flu jab, it sets an example for patients and other staff working at the surgery.

This is an improvement on last year's results when a total 62.8 per cent of GPs had the flu jab. GP uptake is likely to increase even further as the flu season is not over yet. So far, 420,000 frontline staff have been vaccinated against the flu.
