The UK Health Security Agency monitors national immunisation programmes in England, and will monitor the implementation of any future protection immunisation programmes for older adults and infants. This includes immunisation coverage, immunisation effectiveness at preventing disease, including the duration of the protective effect, the overall impact of the immunisation programme, and any safety signals. This real-world data will be shared with the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation and the Department, to inform future policy including future eligibility.
