Acton Travel Clinic has official stock of the UK 2020/2021 flu vaccine.
Flu (Influenza) is an infectious disease which spreads very rapidly through coughs and sneezes of people who are already carrying the virus. The Flu immunisation (Flu Vaccine) gives you good protection form the Flu virus, and lasts for 1 year. Each year, the vaccine is usually available from autumn, and is made from the strain of flu that is expected in the coming winter.
The symptoms of flu will hit you severely and suddenly. They will usually include a high temperature, chills, headaches, and aching muscles. A sore throat will often accompany these symptoms. Colds are often mistaken for flu, however they are less severe, and often start gradually with a runny nose or sore throat. For some patients, Flu can lead to serious illnesses like bronchitis or pneumonia, and may require hospital treatment. The main purpose of the flu vaccine is to protect those patients who are at risk of developing complications that can result from flu.
For private patients, we offer vaccines from £12.99
For children aged 2-17 the flu nasal spray is proven to be twice as effective as the needle injection. The price for the nasal spray is £35.
The flowing patient groups are eligible for FREE vaccinations under the NHS.
