Get your Flu Vaccines in Belgrave and Nuneaton

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. You can now get your flu vaccines in Belgrave and Nuneaton directly from our pharmacies.

Who is eligible for the flu vaccine?

The flu vaccine is offered on the NHS every year in autumn or early winter, but you can get it later.

You can get the free NHS vaccine if you:

– Are aged 65 or over (including those turning 65 by March 31, 2024)
– Have certain chronic health conditions
– Are pregnant
– Live in a care home
– Are the primary caregivers for older or disabled persons, or recipients of a carer’s allowance
– Live with someone having a weakened immune system

Frontline health and social care workers can also get a flu vaccine through their employer.

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.
