In 2017:
  • uptake rates for 1 year olds of the 5-in-1 vaccine which protects children against diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, polio and Haemophilus influenza type B (DTaP/IPV/Hib), the pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV), the rotavirus vaccine and the infant meningitis B (MenB) vaccine were all above the WHO recommended target of 95%
  • for 2 year olds, other than for the Hib/Meningitis C (MenC) vaccine (94%), the uptake rates for the 5-in-1 vaccine, the first dose of the measles, mumps and rubella (MMR), and the pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV) were all above the WHO target of 95%
  • for 5 year olds, uptake rates for  the first dose of MMR and the Hib/MenC were above 95%; the 4-in-1 diphtheria, tetanus, acellular pertussis and inactivated polio vaccine (DTaP/IPV) uptake was 89%; the uptake rate for the full course of MMR (two doses) by 5 years old was 92%
  • over four-fifths (85%) of eligible females (aged 12 to 13 years) received the full course of the human papillomavirus vaccine (HPV) 
  • over half (56%) of 70 year olds received the shingles vaccine 
  • around half (52%) of patients over 65 years of age and registered with a GP in Jersey received a vaccine against pneumococcal infections
  • around half (53%) of 2 to 4 year olds received the seasonal flu vaccine (via nasal spray), an increase from 2016 (32%); also 59% of primary school aged children received the flu vaccine – the vast majority of these received it in their school
  • uptake of the flu vaccine at GP surgeries in the at-risk working age group was 35% in the 2017/2018 winter season, an increase from 24% the previous season (2016/2017)
  • over half (57%) of patients registered with a GP and aged 65 or over received a seasonal flu vaccination at their surgery; the WHO recommends that vaccine uptake for people aged 65 years and over should be 75%
