Protecting yourself against this year’s strain of flu and Covid is a good idea. We provide the winter vaccines in Chippenham and our team at Chippenham Pharmacy and Health Clinic is here to help you.

Maybe you are worried about catching flu or covid, or you are concerned about having time off work. Or maybe you just want to make sure you do not pass it on to the more vulnerable members of your family. Whatever the reason, being vaccinated against this year’s strain of flu and covid can give you protection and peace of mind. We give NHS flu jabs to people aged 18 years and older who are eligible to receive the jab for free and flu is also available as a private service.

 

The free NHS flu and covid vaccines are available for those who:

  • are 65 and over
  • have certain health conditions (more information can be found here)
  • are pregnant
  • are in long-stay residential care
  • receive a carer’s allowance, or are the main carer for an older or disabled person who may be at risk if you get sick
  • live with someone who is more likely to get infections (such as someone who has HIV, has had a transplant or is having certain treatments for cancer, lupus or rheumatoid arthritis)
  • frontline health or social care workers

If however, you do not qualify for a free NHS flu jab we can still provide you with a private flu vaccination, however the covid vaccination is only available on the NHS.
