Seasonal Flu Vaccination
FREE NHS flu vaccinations now available to all patients over the age of 50.
Kamsons Pharmacies offer free NHS flu vaccinations to those eligible or private vaccines for those not eligible under the NHS (unfortunately our private flu vaccination service is currently suspended following government requirements, we hope to resume private vaccines in the new year).
There are a few myths that surround flu vaccinations. Did you know that it is not possible to catch flu from receiving the vaccine? You also need to have a flu vaccine each year as they are tailored to the strains of flu for that season.
