It’s really important that everyone is immunised and in particular with the Influenza vaccine.
Every year the strain covered in the vaccine is reviewed and usually changes and new strains added. The World Health Organisation (WHO) issues guidance based on experiences and strains in other countries and the Joint Committee for Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) reviews evidence and modifies advice accordingly.
The aim of the national flu immunisation programme is to offer protection against the effects of flu to as many eligible people as possible, particularly those most at risk. All eligible groups should be given flu vaccination as soon as the vaccine is available to ensure that people are protected before the flu virus circulates.
Each year around this time the Department of Health along with Public Health England release the strategy for the following winter. It’s important that each clinician who is involved with the Influenza campaign is updated each year. The latest information on the flu programme is available from the government website, Annual Flu Programme.
