Flu Vaccine - can my older teenager/6th former get a NHS one?

Unfortunately, unless your child is at school [or homeschooling] in Year 1-11, or has a long-term health condition, they don’t qualify for a free NHS flu vaccination on the winter 20/21 scheme.

They can still get one [if you pay around £14] from a high-street pharmacy, and you can book appointments online.

For example, Lloyds Pharmacy offer a flu vaccination, in-store, for anyone over the age of 12.
