A young pupil’s artwork is supporting the QEH’s flu vaccination campaign.
The Trust teamed up with one of its nearest schools – Reffley Academy – to run a competition for the design of a poster promoting the benefits of getting the jab.
Year 3 pupil Erin Frost’s superb effort earned her the prize of an art set, presented at a school assembly.
Nikki Sullivan, a member of the Trust’s Occupational Health team, said: “We were really pleased to be able to reach out into the wider community with this.
“The pupils did a fantastic job with their entries and made the judging a difficult task.
“We’re hoping to get more than 80 per cent of staff members immunised this year because the vaccination protects everyone – our patients, work colleagues and family members. Erin’s poster will remind people around the Trust of the importance of getting the jab and hopefully encourage our highest-ever participation rate.”
More than 1,000 staff members were vaccinated in the first few days of the campaign. All Board members had the jab at their latest meeting.
