This report summarises influenza statistics over the 2022 and 2023 winter period, including:
- influenza illness activity. This is the number of patients with confirmed flu and number of resident patients presenting to their GP with flu-like illness
- annual uptake of the seasonal influenza vaccination
Clinicians can use the numbers presenting with flu-like symptoms, alongside cases of influenza confirmed amongst patients to assess the extent of influenza on the Island. The report also shows to what extent the previous year's flu vaccines were delivered in advance of the winter flu season.
Also presented are data regarding deaths from influenza and pneumonia for the period 2015 to 2022.
