Have you had a flu jab this year ?
How would you rate your experience?
Was it good, or could it have been better?
Healthwatch Cumbria would like to hear your experience, please take a minute to complete our short survey.
Background to our survey
Influenza vaccination uptake among adults aged 65 years was 70.5%, and among clinically at risk individuals between the ages of six months and sixty five was 48.6% in the winter season 2016 – 2017.
Effective methods of identifying and communicating with eligible patients are associated with significantly higher rates of flu vaccination.
Healthwatch Cumbria hope to make a positive contribution to flu vaccination rates within the county by comparing the experiences of patients with the strategies of GP surgeries and pharmacies to;
- identify barriers to flu vaccination uptake
- to identify areas of best practice.
The survey will close at 10 p.m on Friday 22nd of December and the findings will be published on our website.
