Flu Vaccination Service (Sept – Jan)

We offer a walk in Private Flu Vaccination service for adults above the age of 18, no appointment necessary. You will be asked to fill in a short questionnaire to ensure the vaccination is safe and appropriate for you to have. Our pharmacist will review the information and then answer any questions you may have, before administrating the vaccination. You will be asked to wait for 5-10 minutes afterwards to ensure that you have had no immediate reaction to the vaccination and will be given some advice as to how to manage any pain, fever or discomfort you may develop post vaccination.

Why Vaccinate against Seasonal Flu?

What is Flu?

Flu is a respiratory illness caused by the infectious influenza virus. The illness lasts about a week and affects the nose, throat and lungs. Symptoms include headache, high fever, chills, sore throat, aching joints and a dry cough.

Each year the virus is slightly different, its severity is unpredictable. Some flu seasons are worse than others. It depends on the type of flu virus going around and the number of people who are susceptible to it each winter.

Thankfully for the majority of people influenza is not a serious illness and they recover fully within one or two weeks. However, in some people complications develop leading to more serious illnesses.

All 'at risk' groups are eligible to receive free flu jabs from the National Health Service. The Department of Health runs an annual campaign to encourage as many of these people as possible to have a jab. Our service helps you complement this programme by offering vaccinations to people through their workplace.

Avoiding the flu virus on crowded buses and trains or in an office environment is hard. Flu is highly infectious and is passed on through sneezing, coughing and hand contact, as well as indirectly from touching infected door handles, telephones etc.

Offering your staff a flu jab has a number of benefits - decreasing employee absenteeism and maintaining productivity in your workforce; demonstrating commitment to employee health both in work and at home; playing a part in helping to protect families and the wider community.

How does the flu vaccine work?

The vaccine is very safe and effective. It protects against the viral strains advised by the World Health Organisation (WHO) as being the most likely to attack the UK. In 2010 it will also protect against swine flu.

After about a week, the vaccine produces antibodies (chemicals in the blood) that protect against the virus strains. Current vaccines give 70-90% protection against flu. For those who may still get flu, the illness is often milder.
