Flu Vaccination

Help against fighting the flu virus by protecting yourself with the flu vaccination service available through the NHS or privately at Links Pharmacy.


Why would you need a Flu Vaccination?

Being administered with the flu vaccination reduces the risk of infection spreading to people you are in close contact with.  Some people are at higher risk of being infected with the flu virus such as asthmatics and those with low immunity (immuno-compromised).  It is therefore important that those people are protected.

What is the Flu Vaccination Service?

This is a free NHS service available at Links Pharmacy for certain patients meeting the eligibility criteria:

  • Aged 65 and over
  • Pregnant women
  • Patients with certain medical conditions

For those patients that do not fall into the eligibility criteria then Links Pharmacy offers a private service.  The NHS or private service is carried out by a specially trained pharmacist who is allowed to administer the flu vaccination.
