Flu Vaccination Service
Update – 13 October 2021
We’re lucky to be in such a health conscious community, we have seen unprecedented demand for our flu jabs this season and have temporarily run out of vaccines. We are expecting more to be delivered soon.
If you are on our waiting list please be assured that we will call you when we have more stock to arrange an appointment, there is no need to call the pharmacy.
Getting the flu vaccination is a good idea.
Maybe you are worried about catching the flu or you are concerned about having time off work. Or maybe you just want to make sure you do not pass it on to the more vulnerable members of your family. Whatever the reason, having the flu vaccine against this year’s strain of seasonal flu can give you protection and peace of mind.
We give NHS flu jabs to people aged 18 years and older who are eligible to receive the jab for free.
You are eligible to receive an NHS flu jab if you:
- – adults 50 and over
- – those aged 6 months to under 50 years in clinical risk groups
- – pregnant women
- – carers
- – close contacts of immunocompromised individuals
- – frontline health or social care workers
If you do not qualify for a free NHS flu jab we can still provide you with a private flu vaccination. This will cost £15.
Please contact us today to arrange an appointment.
Who shouldn’t have the flu jab?
Most people can have a flu vaccine. However, there are a couple of exceptions:
- – If you are currently unwell with a fever, you should delay getting the flu jab.
- – If you have an egg allergy, speak to your GP or pharmacist before getting the jab.
