The final flu vaccination figures for the 2017/18 season have been released by Public Health England today, showing that a record 706,075 frontline healthcare workers in the NHS have had their flu jab this year.
This amounts to a total of 68.7 per cent of staff, or over 80,000 more staff than were vaccinated during last year’s flu season.
246 organisations submitted data on seasonal influenza vaccinations administered, with the highest uptake achieved by East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust who achieved 92.3 per cent uptake.
27.5 per cent of all trusts who submitted data achieved uptake rates of 75 per cent or more.
Huge congratulations to all trusts on their flu campaigns this year!
