Flu fighter

Access the latest flu figures which reveal more than 650,000 frontline healthcare workers had their jab between September and December 2018 – an increase of 30,432 more staff compared to the same period last year.

We would like to congratulate trusts on their hard work promoting the flu campaign, and commend the 63 trusts who have already achieved the national target of 75 per cent flu vaccination uptake.
