The Official NHS flu vaccine

1st

Hive Pharmacy is the highest performing location for flu vaccinations in Staines and Ashford.

Flu Jabs

Protect yourself and your loved ones this winter season against flu with our private and NHS flu jab services. The flu vaccination service is usually available between September and March.

Why get a flu jab?

Flu is a contagious viral disease that can spread by coughing, sneezing or touching contaminated surfaces or people. Stay healthy and protect your friends, family and work colleagues by getting vaccinated. Last year community pharmacies administered over 1 million flu jabs in the UK. One of our pharmacists will carry out a consultation to ensure that the flu jab is safe and appropriate for you. You may ask any questions that you might have about flu vaccinations during this consultation.

Free NHS flu jabs

Flu can be serious in some patient groups as it can lead to further complications. The NHS free flu jab service provides free flu vaccination to these specific patient groups. Those eligible for the free flu vaccination include the over 65s, pregnant women and those with certain medical conditions. Our pharmacists will check your eligibility for the free flu vaccination during your consultation. If you are not eligible for the free NHS flu jab, you can get the private flu jab at a very competitive price at our pharmacy.
