As public health professionals concerned at low uptake in the region’s care home workers and pregnant women

• People who have not yet been vaccinated, including pregnant women and those with long-term health conditions, are urged to take up the offer before flu starts circulating
• Flu vaccine uptake in pregnant women is low in the West Midlands – putting mothers and their unborn children at risk
• Uptake in care home workers in the region is slow – putting staff and some of the most vulnerable people in their care at risk
• From 1 December, 50 to 64-years-olds became eligible for a free flu vaccine
• Nationally, uptake in 65-year-olds and over is the highest since 2005/06 and higher than this time last year in most other groups
