The objective is to offer flu vaccination to all children aged 2 to under 17 years, resulting in reduction in transmission of influenza, with reduced levels of influenza-related morbidity and mortality throughout the population. The modelling that underpins this objective showed that vaccinating children would reduce transmission of the influenza virus in children, and thus protect the whole community.
This equality analysis is based on the data from the 2013 to 2014 season and action taken in 2014 to 2015. It includes detail on uptake rates in the first year of the programme and sets out the Department of Health’s approach to monitoring the impact of the programme over time.
