Recognition award for vaccination uptake amongst care sector staff across the North of England You can help us to help you and the people you care for

In the North of England, NHS England and NHS Improvement and Public Health England have come together to set up an award scheme to recognise the efforts made by the care sector, care homes, hospices and domiciliary care providers, who have achieved a high level of flu vaccine uptake for their staff. This scheme is being implemented following a successful pilot scheme that ran during the last flu season (2018-19). The award includes all health and social care staff who are directly involved in the care of vulnerable patients/clients who are at increased risk from exposure to influenza. Vulnerable means those patients /clients in a clinical risk group for flu, or who are aged 65 years or over and is intended to complement any existing local initiatives. The flu jab helps to protect you from catching flu and it also reduces the risk of you passing the virus on to the people you care for. There is an increased risk of them catching flu because of their long-term condition or disability, and they could develop complications and become seriously ill as a result.
