Help protect you and your family in the fight against flu with our private or NHS flu jab service.

Why get a flu jab?
If you want help to stay healthy and prevent the spread of flu among family, friends and work colleagues, taking advantage of the winter flu jab at Boots is a good first step. Flu is contagious and it can be passed through coughing, sneezing or by touching infected surfaces or people. Most flu outbreaks usually happen in late autumn or winter, and, for most people, it’s an unpleasant but not a life-threatening condition.

The NHS flu vaccination at Boots
We offer the free NHS flu jab in most pharmacies in England and Wales. People living in Scotland and Northern Ireland can, if eligible, get the free NHS flu jab through their GP. Flu can be serious for those more at risk of developing complications and these people are entitled to a free NHS jab. These include the over 65s, pregnant women and those with certain medical conditions.

Private flu vaccination at Boots
If you’re not eligible for the free NHS flu jab, a private Winter Flu Jab Service is available in most Boots pharmacies* across the UK. At Boots we want the best for our customers, which is why this year we’re offering a vaccination service that provides improved protection against flu**. We’re now offering protection against four strains of flu – an additional strain compared to last year.

What protection will the flu jab provide?
No vaccine is 100 percent effective, but being vaccinated is likely to give you effective protection against the strains of flu virus contained in the vaccination. This includes swine flu. Following the vaccination, it takes 14-21 days for protection to start.

Price
The private Winter Flu Jab Service costs £12.99. The NHS service is free if you’re eligible to receive it.

Corporate Flu, how much does it cost?
E-vouchers are priced at the discounted rate of £8.50 per employee (for 10 or more people). For orders of 250 or more e-vouchers, a reduced rate of £7.75 applies, decreasing to £6.50 for orders of 1,000 or more e-vouchers. Buy online at bootscorporateflu.com
