Details

The flu plan sets out a coordinated and evidence-based approach to planning for, and responding to, the demands of influenza across England.

The flu plan will aid the development of strong and flexible operational plans by local organisations and emergency planners within the NHS and local government. It provides the public, and healthcare professionals, with:

  • an overview of the co-ordination and the preparation for the flu season
  • signposting to further guidance and information

It is supported by the annual flu letter and includes details about the extension of the flu vaccination programme to children. The only change to the programme this year is the addition of the offer of the live attenuated influenza vaccine to children of appropriate age for school year 3.
