Flu in prisons poses the risk of significant and potentially more serious outbreaks than in the community. Prisons have a large population with high turnover, of people who live in close and often overcrowded quarters.
This audit of the 2014 to 2015 seasonal flu vaccination programme across London prisons was conducted by Public Health England London in collaboration with NHS England (London). The objectives were to:
- identify gaps in the organisation and delivery of the programme
- identify any inconsistencies in reporting of flu vaccination data
- recommend measures to improve future flu vaccination programmes
