NHS Flu Vaccination

NHS Flu Vaccination in Sutton Coldfield

**** Unfortunately we have run out of the under 65 vaccines as of 21st December 2023. Apologise for the inconvenience.

 

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.

Walmley Pharmacy in Sutton Coldfield gives NHS flu jabs to people aged 18 years and older who are eligible to receive the jab for free.

The NHS flu jab for the 2023/24 flu season is eligible for:

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.

 

Please note: we are only running Flu Vaccine services from 28th Sept on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
