Influenza: Milton Keynes

Volume 504: debated on Monday 18 January 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many people were administered (a) swine influenza vaccines and (b) seasonal influenza vaccines by the Milton Keynes Primary Care Trust in 2008-09. (311097)

The total numbers of doses of swine and seasonal influenza vaccines administered by the Milton Keynes Primary Care Trust (PCT) in the 2008-09 seasonal influenza immunisation programme and up to 30 November 2009 in the 2009-10 seasonal and swine influenza immunisation programmes are given in the following table.

For seasonal influenza, a single dose of vaccine is given therefore, the figures equate to the number of people vaccinated. For swine influenza vaccine, most, but not all, people are given a single dose of vaccine (some are given two doses of vaccine). Therefore, the total number of people vaccinated will be a little less than the number of doses given (data on the number of people vaccinated are not yet available).
