Flu Vaccination

Flu Vaccination

The flu is not just a bad cold. It is caused by an influenza virus that affects the lungs, and spreads through coughs and sneezes. The most common symptoms are fever, chills, headaches, muscle and joint aches and pains, and extreme tiredness.

Most healthy individuals recover within a week, but for some people, the flu can lead to hospitalisation, disability, or even death.


The flu vaccination has been continuously proven to be safe and effective. It’s offered every year through the NHS to help protect people at risk of getting seriously ill if they were to contract the flu. Flu vaccination is important because, while flu is unpleasant for most people, it can be dangerous and even life threatening for some people, particularly those with certain health conditions. For more details on the flu, please visit the NHS website.


Flu is unpredictable, but vaccinations provide the best protection against severe illness. Fordingbridge Chemist offers the flu vaccination programme every year on the NHS to help protect people at risk.

 The best time to get your flu jab is before the winter, before the flu starts spreading. From early October, Fordingbridge Chemist provides a dedicated ‘walk-in flu service’, enabling patients to access the vaccine at their convenience.
