Flu Uptake Rates

At the end of every Flu Campaign we have to submit our overall “uptake” figures to ensure we have vaccinated as many eligible patients as possible. This year we had a very good uptake for our over 65s, and achieved the 75% target. However, we were not as successful with our under 65 ‘at risk’ patients as only achieved 53%


These are patients in categories such as Asthma, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease and a new category of Morbidly Obese (BMI above 40). If you fall into one of these categories and   didn’t take up the offer of a flu vaccine, the Practice would be interested to hear any ideas that you might have to make this easier for next year’s campaign.
