Flu Vaccination Service - Travel Clinic Near Me

We offer advice for flu and the flu vaccination service at our local travel clinics.

Who is at risk?

In order to help prevent the rising numbers of people developing the flu, flu vaccines are provided by the NHS every year to adults and children who are most at risk.

If a healthy individual catches the flu, there should be little concern for developing complications as it will likely clear up within a week or two.

The flu is more prominent and dangerous for those who meet specific requirements as listed below:

  • Anyone aged 65 and over.
  • Health care or care home workers exposed to those who may have the flu.
  • Pregnant women
  • Adults with certain long term chronic conditions.
  • Adults with weakened immune systems that cannot fight off the flu as easily.

Why the flu vaccination is important

Vaccination against the flu is offered for free on the NHS to:

  • Adults over the age of 18 at risk of flu (including everyone aged 65 and over)
  • Pregnant women
  • Children aged 6 months to 2 years at risk of flu
