NHS & Private Flu Vaccines

Getting the flu vaccination is a great 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.

Who is eligible for the flu vaccine?

We give NHS flu jabs to people aged 18 years and older who are eligible to receive the jab for free.

The NHS flu jab is eligible for:

– Adults 65 and over (including those who will be 65 by 31/03/2024)

– People with certain medical conditions (including children in at-risk groups from 6 months of age)

– Pregnant women at any stage of pregnancy

– Everyone living in a residential or nursing home

– I you receive a carer’s allowance, or are the main carer for an older or disabled person who may be at risk if you get sick

– People living with someone who’s more likely to get a severe infection due to a weakened immune system

– 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 and this applies for both under and over 50s.

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.

Please speak to our pharmacy team about eligibility, how to get your NHS flu jab and to book this service.
