Cost - £50 per vaccine
The best way to help protect yourself and others from flu is to have the flu jab every year. Over time, protection from the flu jab gradually decreases and flu strains can change, which means last year's jab may not protect you from this year's strains. There may also be an increase in flu cases this autumn due to the lack of exposure to the flu virus last winter driven by reduced social interaction.
Whilst no vaccine is 100% effective, having a flu jab will help protect you from catching flu and passing it on to others. After your jab, it usually takes around 14-21 days to be protected.
At your appointment, our doctor / nurse will inject the vaccine into your upper arm. As with all medicines, there may be some side effects. The most common side effects include:
- Redness, soreness or bruising at the injection site
- A high temperature, sweating, shivering or feeling unwell
- Headaches, fatigue or dizziness
- Aching muscles or joints
- These side effects are usually mild and should disappear on their own in a day or two.
