Flu Vaccinations

Influenza is a viral disease that usually strikes between October and May. The influenza vaccination (sometimes known as a flu jab) is an annual vaccination, using a flu vaccine specific for a given year, to protect against the highly variable influenza virus. 

Flu Vaccination costs £15 per person at Your Doctor, or become a Your Doctor member from just £39.99 per month, and receive a FREE annual flu vaccination as just one of your member benefits.

Contact us to book your family flu vaccinations at our Wexham or Tring surgeries, or to find out more about vaccinating your workforce.

Flu Facts:

What Is Flu?

Flu is an acute viral respiratory infection, which can easily be spread when in close contact with other people - at school, work or simply in everyday public places.

What Are The Symptoms Of Flu?

Symptoms of flu usually include a high temperature of 38c or above, muscle aches and pains, a headache, loss of appetite and exhaustion.

Why Is Flu Vaccination Important?

Vaccination is the most effective way of preventing yourself and others around you from getting flu. Each year the flu strain changes, and a new vaccination is created to protect against the latest predicted strain - so it's important to get vaccinated every year.

Does The Flu Vaccine Give You Flu?

The simple answer is no. The vaccination contains inactivated virus strains, so it can't give you the flu. The vaccine can however take up to two weeks to give full protection, so it is still possible to catch the flu during this period.

How Does The Flu Vaccine Work?

Roughly 7-10 days after having the vaccine, your body produces antibodies that help to protect you against similar viruses that may infect you.

Flu Vaccination costs £15 per person at Your Doctor, or become a Your Doctor member from just £39.99 per month, and receive a FREE annual flu vaccination as just one of your member benefits.

We also offer a wide range of other vaccination services, including some that are not routinely available to all on the NHS, including Meningitis B, Meningitis C, Chickenpox, Shingles & HPV, as well as travel and other adult vaccinations.
