Church Pharmacy is here to protect you and your loved ones from Flu this Autumn. Even when we feel fit and healthy, we can still catch the flu. Which is why we think having your flu vaccination is so important.
Church Pharmacy only offers the child flu vaccine Privately as we are not contracted by the NHS to provide this service. Please refer to your GP for NHS children vaccine.
The best way to help protect yourself and others from catching and spreading flu is to have the flu jab every year. Flu strains can change from year to year, which means last year’s jab may not protect you from this year’s strains. Over time, protection from the flu jab gradually decreases, so this is another reason to keep up to date and get your flu jab every year.
No vaccine is 100 percent effective but being vaccinated helps protect you against the strains of flu virus contained in the vaccination. This includes swine flu. After your jab, it usually takes around 14-21 days to be protected against flu.
