Flu vaccination data from PharmOutcomes, Sonar Informatics and Healthi for 2017/18

The data in the PDF below only contains flu vaccinations administered as part of the 2017/18 service which have been entered into the PharmOutcomes, Sonar Informatics or Healthi systems. Some contractors are unable to use or have decided not to use either of these electronic systems to record administration of vaccines. The total number of vaccinations administered is therefore higher than the total in the below PDF document.
