Vaccination & Flu Shot Bookings
Our pharmacy team are committed to being extra cautious during this time to ensure a safe and clean working environment to protect the health of our staff and customers.
To deliver this service safely to our customers we have implemented the following measures:
If you are unwell please do not attend:
If you have any COVID‐19 or flu like symptoms including fever, sore throat, cough or shortness of breath please do not present for your flu shot. Please call our pharmacy, cancel and rebook for another time when you are well.
If you are in self‐isolation, you are not allowed to leave your home to have your flu shot:
If you have been told by a health professional that you meet the criteria for self‐isolation you must not enter our pharmacy. Leaving your house puts others at risk and is breaking the law. Please call our pharmacy to cancel and rebook after medical clearance has been given for you to end self‐isolation.
Our pharmacy will have access to hand sanitiser for use by the Pharmacist between each vaccination and will be made available for customer use. Please note that it is not a current requirement that gloves must be worn, as long as proper hand hygiene practices are being followed.
Cleaning and disinfecting of our pharmacies:
In addition to our usual cleaning procedures we have added additional regular cleaning and disinfection of all hard surfaces.
Staff and customers are encouraged to leave 1.5 meters between each other whenever possible.
The skin around the vaccination site may become red or sore, or you may also experience itching, bruising or mild swelling. Some people may also experience a mild fever, muscle aches, headache, or swelling of the lymph gland (under the armpit). These symptoms usually resolve within two days but if you have any concerns, please speak to your Pharmacist or Healthcare Professional.
In some instances, there may also be a risk of other effects such as fainting. If you have Guillain-Barre syndrome, there may be a risk of neurological symptoms. If either of these are relevant for you, please inform your Pharmacist before administering your vaccine.
