About this service

What is the Seasonal Flu Vaccination (Private) service? 

A flu vaccination protects and saves lives from influenza, an infectious disease. As the colder and bitter months approach, this increases the spread of the common disease. Therefore, it is recommended individuals receive a flu vaccination to prevent the spread, especially during ‘flu season’.  

At Allied Pharmacies, we offer the Seasonal Flu Vaccination as a private service, however, it is important to check which pharmacy branch offers this service before booking. 


Who can access this service? 

Those who do not qualify for a free seasonal flu vaccination under the NHS (click here to access the criteria) must pay and access this via a private service.  

Most people are eligible to receive the influenza vaccination, however those who cannot are individuals who have:  

  • Had a serious allergic reaction (anaphylaxis) to a previous dose of the vaccine or an ingredient in the vaccine 
  • An egg allergy (this is due to some of the flu vaccines used in the UK contain egg protein) 

It is important to note that if you do have an egg allergy that you report this to the person vaccinating you. 


Why is the Seasonal Flu Vaccination (Private) service important? 

Influenza can be a life-threatening illness so, it is important for individuals to visit their local pharmacy to receive the flu vaccination every year. Not only does this prevent themselves from catching this infectious disease, but it also protects others from being affected. 


Do I need to pay for this service? 

Individuals who are receiving a seasonal flu vaccination under the private service need to pay a fee. If you have any queries regarding this, please consult with one of our pharmacists.
