      Abstract

      A survey of paediatricians in the North East of England showed that the majority of them were aware of the Chief Medical Officer’s (CMO) recommendations for both influenza and pneumococcal vaccines. However, there was a poor rate of correct identification of some “high-risk” children for whom the vaccines are recommended.
