Abstract

This article was sponsored by CSL Seqirus. CSL Seqirus had no involvement in the writing or editorial process of this article. The seasonal flu campaign remains a critically important public health intervention to reduce morbidity, mortality and hospitalisation associated with flu within the struggling NHS. This is still a period of uncertainty post pandemic where last Winter we saw a surge in respiratory illness and an increase death rate associated to influenzae and pneumonia. It considers vaccine hesitancy relating it to the different at-risk groups and the role of the nurse in education. It is therefore important to identify who is eligible for vaccination and to be aware of the different vaccinations for each group. This article reviews the recommendations for the 2023–2034 seasonal influenzae period.
