Flu Vaccinations: Flu is a highly infectious and very common viral illness that is spread by coughs and sneezes, and getting a flu jab is the single best way to protect yourself, your family and friends from flu.
You can catch flu (Influenza) all year round, but it is particularly prevalent during the winter months. Flu is not the same as a cold, it is caused by a different group of viruses and the symptoms of flu tend to be more severe and may last longer.
Until recently the only way to get a flu jab was through your local GP, Murrays Healthcare are now able to offer the flu jab, by one of our trained pharmacists. This service is available Free of Charge via the NHS for the following patient groups:-
- All people aged 65 and over
- Anyone suffering with a long-term condition such as Diabetes, Chronic Heart Disease, Asthma, COPD, Chronic Kidney Disease, Chronic Liver Disease, Chronic Neurological diseases such as Parkinson’s Disease or Motor Neurone Disease.
- Those that are immuno – compromised.
- Carers in receipt of a carer’s allowance.

We also offer a flu vaccination service to most members of the public not eligible for a free NHS vaccination.
