This report is designed to provide a yearly update of immunisation uptake rates for children and adults in Jersey.
This first release includes data to 31 December 2015 for childhood immunisations for children up to five years of age. For teenagers, data is presented for the academic year running from September 2015 to August 2016. This report also includes data for seasonal flu vaccinations and covers the winter period 2015-2016.
Also presented in this report are figures for adult immunisations given in GP surgeries in Jersey, including pertussis for pregnant women, shingles for those aged 70 (plus a catch-up for those aged 71-79) and protection against pneumococcal infections for adults aged 65 or over. The data for adult immunisations is extracted from the GP central server that was introduced in 2013; due to data quality issues this data is presented as experimental statistics only.
Immunisation statistics include information on different vaccines given, the rates over time and comparisons to England, Wales and Scotland.
Data presented in this report has been extracted from the Child Health Information System, the GP central server and is presented alongside data provided by the Immunisation Nurse Specialist within the Preventive Programmes team.
