Summary of report content
As part of the Winter Flu planning process, Healthwatch Doncaster developed a survey for local people to ask them where they would like to go for their Flu jab this year so that local voices can influence the development and planning on the Flu vaccination process in Doncaster in 2020, during the Covid-19 pandemic. 2777 people shared their views and completed the survey.
Local GP surgeries were identified as the most popular place to get a flu jab. Alternative options such as Community Pharmacies, drive-thru options and Health Bus/mobile clinics are popular options that provide more people with more choice. If the cohort who will be targeted for flu jabs includes anyone over 50 years old then there will need to be a choice about where to go to access a flu jab. There will be larger proportion of the population who will be working and they may not be able to access flu jabs during the working day. Use of community locations at different times may improve access and uptake.
