  4. I came across an interesting paper this week looking at how GPs approach seasonal flu vaccination in the UK and NL (countries with the best record of hitting the EU target of vaccination 75% of people in at-risk groups). Worth a look if you are interested in this area. The aim of this article is to harmonise the diagnosis of seasonal influenza and the approach of European general practitioners to seasonal influenza vaccination in order to better identify influenza outbreaks and to move towards reaching the target vaccination rate of 75% throughout Europe.

  14. Blog: Public health matters by Mary Ramsay, 26 April 2016 There’s a simple reason vaccination is so important - it prevents disease and saves lives. And in terms of disease prevention, only clean water (also considered to be a basic human right) performs better. This week is European Immunisation Week, led by the World Health Organisation, and the focus is on measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccination. During this week, we’ll be highlighting progress made as we aim towards elimination of measles in the UK, as we have seen already with rubella. But there’s no room for complacency – we need to get rid of measles and to keep rubella from coming back. We’ll be focussing on the remaining immunisation gap between those who are protected and those who sadly remain vulnerable. Measles is a highly infectious viral illness and in children it is usually mild, but for adults it can be much more severe. Catching the virus can be very unpleasant, but can also lead to more serious complications including pneumonia and seizures. The MMR vaccine means measles is now less common in the UK, but those who aren’t vaccinated or not fully vaccinated, remain susceptible to this highly infectious disease. Read the full article
