Private Flu Vaccination
If you are not eligible for an NHS flu Vaccination we offer a private Flu Vaccination service. There are any number of reasons you feel that reducing the risk of catching flu would be a good idea. We all have the Flu Jab at Clare Pharmacy as we work with vulnerable patients, but we also know how bad flu makes you feel. This service is quick and simple, involving a questionnaire and discussion about the pros & cons of Flu Vaccination. This year we will be using the WHO quad-valiant vaccination which offers more protection, but is slightly more expensive (as usual). We have tried to keep the cost increase to a minimum to offer the best value of money we can for private flu vaccinations.
A private Flu Vaccination only costs £12
