Public Health England’s newly released report on seasonal influenza vaccine uptake amongst GP patients in England reveals that only 32% of pregnant women in England have received the winter flu vaccine.
Just over half (56%) of those aged 65 and over had been immunised in this period, and only 33.3% of those aged 6 months to 65 years and in an at risk group have opted to receive the free vaccine.
Whilst these uptake ratios represent a 0.6% increase for pregnant women, and a 0.5% increase for 6 months-65 years and at risk from 2015/2016, uptake rates for 65s declined from 58.1% to 56%.
