Why is there a need for a Flu Vaccination?
Each year, the viruses which exist and infect us change. To address this occurrence, new vaccines must continually be created to parallel the virus’ evolution. The same germs and constituents which were present the year before, will have changed by the following year. For this reason, it is recommended to get the flu jab each year.
Side effects are generally mild and the chance that the flu vaccination might lead to severe health complications is rare. Any side effects caused by the vaccine — from muscle soreness to inflammation and even low-grade fever — should disappear within a few days but provide protection throughout the year from current flu viruses. In the long run, this can prevent you and your family from experiencing unforeseen illness.
Get Vaccinated Privately
A good flu jab service will consider your ongoing protection from COVID-19 while administering your vaccination. In which case, receiving your flu vaccine privately in a secure location, with booking times to suit remains a much safer option. Pharmacy To My Door have just one consultation room to serve the public, which means you remain distant from the prospective crowds of people you might otherwise find at your local surgery or even other pharmacies.
In lieu of COVID-19, flu jab supplies on the NHS can often run low or out completely. In this case, you can avoid the wait and book a private appointment at Pharmacy To My Door for your flu vaccine.
What is the Cost of Private Flu Vaccination?
Those not covered by the NHS should expect to pay between £10-15 for the flu vaccine. The price will vary depending on the contents of the vaccine and the service required to provide it, overall a small price tag to pay to be free from the risk of developing the flu’s severe respiratory complications, which can even prove fatal for some.
