The vaccination costs £15 and the whole process only takes a short while. A new vaccination for children is also available, it is just as effective as the adult vaccination and is administered as a nasal spray.
Please call us to check for availability and book your appointment to receive the vaccine. Alternatively, you can just walk-in and we will get you vaccinated as soon as possible.
Please note: You do not require a doctor consultation to receive the vaccine, you will just be asked to fill out a short questionnare to ensure you are suitable.

Modern flu vaccines administered before the flu season starts, normally from late September and October can offer protection against the virus.
