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.

Whatever the reason, having the flu vaccine in Brixton, London against this year’s strain of seasonal flu can give you protection and peace of mind.

NHS flu vaccines

Who is eligible for the flu vaccine?

The flu vaccine is given free on the NHS to adults who:

  • – are 50 and over (including those who will be 50 by 31 March 2023)
  • – have certain health conditions
  • – are pregnant
  • – are in long-stay residential care
  • – 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
  • – reside with an individual who has a higher susceptibility to severe infections as a result of a compromised immune system, such as someone cohabitating with HIV, a transplant recipient, or undergoing specific cancer, lupus, or rheumatoid arthritis therapies.

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 65s.

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.
