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

Flu and its complications are one of the main reasons that people get admitted to hospital from the care sector, particularly during winter. Therefore, protecting individuals and populations through immunisation programmes is a highly successful public health intervention that saves many lives each year. Influenza kills an average of 8,000 people every year. If more of us get the jab, we are giving ourselves and those we care for, the best protection against an unpredictable virus.


All care staff who have direct contact with residents/clients/patients should have the flu vaccine to help protect vulnerable patients and clients, who may not make a good immune response to their own flu vaccine.


Qualifying Criteria


The award will be given based on the percentage of staff in receipt of a flu vaccine before the end of March 2020.  Awards will be presented based upon an uptake as below:


  • 70% of staff or above - Gold accreditation
  • 60-69% of staff - Silver accreditation
  • 50-59% of staff - Bronze accreditation
