Please note: we currently are unable to stock the influenza vaccine. We are trying our hardest to do so. For up to date information please call the practice.
The flu is a contagious virus spread by coughs and sneezes. Symptoms start suddenly and can be severe, including: fever of 38C (100.4F) or above, tiredness and weakness which may last for several weeks, headache, general aches and pains, dry, chesty cough, blocked or runny nose, sneezing, and sore throat.
Flu can make you feel very exhausted and unwell, meaning that you may need to stay in bed and rest until you feel better.
If otherwise fit and healthy, you may not be eligible for a free NHS flu vaccine. You may, however, still find it a useful option to receive the vaccine privately if you wish to significantly reduce your chances of catching flu, if you work/commute with many people or if you feel you could not afford the time needed to recover.
