Immform, the influenza vaccine uptake monitoring programme from Public Health England, has released new guidance on how to report the number of flu vaccinations given to frontline healthcare workers. 

The uptake data given by trusts will be used to determine whether a trust is eligible for the flu component of the health and wellbeing CQUIN indicator. 

The flu fighter team has had many queries about how a frontline healthcare worker is defined, and which staff should be included in the numerator and denominator. 

The latest guidance provides more information on these topics as well as which staff groups should be included in the data. 

Please see below the 2017/18 monthly collection dates:
