Get protected against flu
Flu Jab Service
The Flu Jab Service is available at South Ealing Pharmacy.
By getting your flu jab you can stop flu in its tracks before it harms you or your family.
You could be eligible for a free flu jab on the NHS from our pharmacy if you are or have:
· Over 65
· Liver Disease
· Heart Disease
· Kidney Disease
· Weakened Immune System
How can I get my flu jab?
There is no appointment necessary. You will be asked a few questions to see if you are eligible and your jab will be administered by a qualified pharmacist in the privacy of the consultation room hassle free.
It is best to have the flu jab in early autumn before any outbreaks of flu. Remember that you need it every year, so don’t assume you are protected because you had one last year. If you belong to one of the eligible groups mentioned, it’s important that you have your flu jab.
Call into South Ealing pharmacy and ask our team about the Flu Jab Service.
Flu is a highly infectious and very common viral disease. The effects of flu can be devastating, but by getting the flu jab you can stop flu in its tracks before it harms you or your family. Flu is not the same as the common cold. It is caused by a different group of viruses spread through the air. Flu is a serious condition and can cause mild to serious illness and even death. Symptoms can be more severe and last up to several weeks.
General Symptoms of flu:
· Fever, feeling feverish or chills.
· A cough and a sore throat, sneezing, runny or blocked nose.
· Headache, aches and pains.
· Diarrhoea or upset stomach.
· Loss of appetite.
The best way to protect yourself and your family against seasonal flu is to be vaccinated. Vaccination is especially important for people at higher risk of serious flu complications, and for people who live with or care for high risk individuals.
