This Flu Plan sets out a co-ordinated and evidence-based approach to planning for and responding to the demands of flu across England, taking account of lessons learnt during previous flu seasons. It will aid the development of robust 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 and signposting to further guidance and information.

The Flu Plan includes details about the extension of the flu vaccination programme to children, which is being implemented gradually due to the scale of the programme.
