Swine flu jab target revealed

2nd November 2009

The swine flu vaccination campaign launched by the government this winter will mean GPs will be expected to vaccinate 50.7% of at-risk patients, says Pulse.

Data from the direct enhanced service for the campaign reveals: "To receive easement of thresholds, practices will need to achieve a patient uptake of 50.7% or more within JCVI priority group one – that is, six months to 65 years at-risk patients. While a target of 50.7% has been set, GPs will seek to achieve a swine flu vaccination uptake of at least or better than that achieved by the practice for seasonal flu in 2008/09."
