Mayberry Pharmacy have remaining FREE Flu Jabs for Patients aged 50+
This winter, protect yourself and your loved ones from the flu with our free NHS vaccination. Flu kills an average of 8,000 people every year, and it can be particularly serious in older adults, very young children, and people with underlying health conditions. To remedy this, anyone aged 50 or above will be able to get a free flu jab from Mayberry Pharmacy in a bid to combat the twin threats of flu and coronavirus this winter.
Flu vaccination is important because:
- if you’re at higher risk from coronavirus, you’re also more at risk of problems from flu
- if you get flu and coronavirus at the same time, research shows you’re more likely to be seriously ill
- it’ll help to reduce pressure on the NHS and social care staff who may be dealing with coronavirus
If you’ve had COVID-19, it’s safe to have the flu vaccine. It’ll be effective at helping to prevent flu. We have also made changes inside our pharmacies to ensure it’s safe for you to have the flu vaccine. We are enforcing social distancing measures in store as well as asking our patients to use antibacterial gel and wear masks at all times when inside.
