Public Health England has today (19 January) reported that a total of 594,700 frontline healthcare workers have been vaccinated for the flu virus so far this season.

The results, which are measured from 1 September until 31 December, account for 61.8 per cent of eligible healthcare workers in England. This is the highest figure yet both in percentage and total numbers vaccinated, surpassing the 2014/15 end of season figures where a total 541,090 frontline (54.9 per cent) staff got vaccinated.

These results reflect the impressive effort from trusts in getting as many frontline NHS staff vaccinated as possible in order to protect patients as well as the workforce.
