Protect yourself and your family from flu.

Day Lewis Pharmacy is here to protect you and your family from seasonal illnesses such as flu. Vaccination is key, as even the fittest and healthiest person can catch and spread the flu virus. The pharmacy flu vaccination service is for everyone over the age of 18.  

Why have the flu jab?

Catching the flu can be very serious for many people and potentially lead to hospitalisation or, in some cases, death. Getting the vaccination:

  • gives you the best protection against flu
  • usually means milder symptoms for those who have been vaccinated but catch the virus
  • helps protect you, your family and the most vulnerable in our communities
  • lowers your risk of developing serious complications for those who are at high risk of catching the virus

Do I need a flu jab every year?

The changing flu strains means the previous year’s vaccine may not protect you against a different variant. Over time, protection from the flu jab gradually decreases, so an annual pharmacy flu vaccination is essential to provide optimal protection.

What are the symptoms of flu?

Flu symptoms can present and develop very quickly. The symptoms include:

  • a sudden high temperature of 38C or above
  • an aching body
  • feeling exhausted or tired
  • sore throat
  • dry cough
  • headache
  • trouble sleeping
  • loss of appetite
  • diarrhoea or stomach pain
  • feeling sick or vomiting

Can a pharmacist help with flu?

Yes, the NHS recommends that you speak to your pharmacist, who will offer prevention advice and recommend flu remedies if required. The pharmacy flu vaccination service is available at all Day Lewis pharmacies. Please speak to your local Day Lewis pharmacy for more information.

Private flu vaccination

If you are not eligible for a free NHS flu vaccination, we offer a private flu service which costs £18.00. Join our waiting list or visit your local Day Lewis Pharmacy here.
