Winter Flu Jabs for the Whole Family

Flu, or influenza, is a contagious respiratory infection commonly known as “just the flu.” Despite its perception as a mild illness, it can be severe and even fatal.

It spreads through coughs and sneezes, affecting people of all ages. Complications like pneumonia can arise, particularly in those deemed vulnerable, such as the young and elderly, although even healthy individuals can experience severe illness.

In the UK, the peak flu season is usually from late December to March, but timing varies in different regions, and it is important to be vaccinated before then. Most people are vaccinated between September to November each year.

Getting vaccinated is easy. We are a London-based clinic which allows walk ins as well as booked appointments. Early vaccination is crucial to allow sufficient time for full immunity to develop before potential exposure.

Travellers visiting the Southern Hemisphere or tropical countries should note flu follows a different pattern. The tropics for instance have a year round flu season so a flu jab is recommended before travel.

Our comprehensive range of flu vaccinations caters to individuals aged 6 months and older, ensuring the whole family can be protected.

What types of flu jabs do you offer?

Premium Cell-Based Quadrivalent – £42
Manufactured using cell grown cultures rather than traditional egg-based production, this flu jab may also provide a closer match with the antigens of the circulating flu strains than the Standard Quadrivalent flu jab, and may be sightly more protective. It is recommended for severe egg allergy or egg-free vaccine preference.
Suitable for: 2 years –  64 years

FluAd® Adjuvanted Quadrivalent – £35
Contains adjuvant to generate a greater immune response, making it the preferred option, alongside recombinant vaccines, for seniors who require more flu protection.
Suitable for: 65 years and older

Standard Quadrivalent – £30
This option is the most widely used flu jab, and is generally more widely available than the newer options (recombinant/ cell-based).
Standard Quadrivalent vaccines are egg-based and offer good general protection for healthy adults at a lower price point.
Suitable for: 6 months old –  64 years

 

This year, Recombinant Quadrivalent Vaccines will not be available in the UK. However, they are expected to return next year.

Should I get the flu jab every year?

Yes, the best way to protect yourself and your loved ones is to get the flu jab each year.

This is especially important for those who may have health concerns that put them at higher risk of health complications.

The strains of flu in circulation change each year and so the previous year’s vaccine may not contain the current year’s dominant strains, therefore offering much less, if any, protection.

Immunity to flu is not long-lasting, so an annual flu jab is essential for maximum protection.

Our recommended vaccines are the premium cell-based quadrivalent and Fluad due to their superior protection. These vaccines provide enhanced immunity compared to the standard flu jab. The cell-based quadrivalent vaccine avoids egg adaptation, resulting in a better match to circulating flu strains, while Fluad contains an adjuvant that boosts the immune response, particularly in older adults.

However, the most common flu jab is the Standard Quadrivalent, which offers good protection at a more affordable price point.

Take a look at all our options and decide which flu jab best suits you. If you are unsure, book a Standard Quadrivalent and discuss with your nurse at your appointment. They may advise you upgrade to another vaccine, based on your health, medical history and/or your age.

When is the best time to get vaccinated?

Ideally you would want to be vaccinated prior to exposure to the flu virus.

Flu jabs take 14-21 days to reach maximum protection so the earlier you have your flu jab, the better protected you will be.

Vaccinations become available during September and we see a spike in interest during October and November.

Remember it’s never too late.

Stay flu-free this year with a flu jab!

Can you vaccinate babies & children?

Yes. Vaccinating babies & children is important as it not only protects them but it stops them from spreading the flu virus.

Children are often referred to in the media as “super spreaders” for the flu. Luckily there are a few options to vaccinate babies and children.

Standard Quadrivalent – this is an egg-based injected vaccine.
Suitable from 6 months old

Premium Cell-Based Quadrivalent – this is an injected vaccine recommended for severe egg allergy or egg-free vaccine preference.
Suitable from 2 years old

Due to supply issues and delays over the last few years we have made the decision to remove the nasal flu spray from this year’s vaccination options.
We recommend all parents prioritise their child’s flu protection by booking an injected vaccine instead of waiting for the nasal spray. Ensuring adequate flu protection for your child is of utmost importance.

I’m young and healthy, do I still need to get vaccinated?

Although vaccination protects the person who had the vaccine by building in antibodies, that is not their only purpose in society.

If the majority of a population is vaccinated, it offers protection to vulnerable people who either can’t get a flu vaccine or those in whom the flu vaccine is less effective. We should be thinking about how the flu jab helps the wider community we live in and to remember even healthy and young people can experience complications due to the flu.

Why do I need a flu jab?

The immunity for the flu in the population has decreased recently due to less exposure and so overlapping layers of protection are important for maximum protection this year.

We strongly recommend that everyone continue to get their annual flu jab. This helps build immunity and protects both themselves and their loved ones from the flu.

Flu jabs are very safe for pregnant women.

If the mother has a flu vaccination in the second or third trimester, it confers protection to the newborn, making it not only safe and recommended for the month but also offers babies some protection against the virus.

This is important because flu vaccinations are only suitable for babies from 6 months onwards.

Quadrivalent flu jabs including cell-based options are available now – Click to book your Flu Jab.

Yes, as you’ve never had the flu until you’ve had flu.

Just because you have been fortunate to not have had the flu up until now doesn’t mean you will never get it. The vaccine won’t offer you 100% protection but if you do get sick, you’ll most likely have less severe symptoms. Not only that, but flu vaccinations offer protection to those you love, those you work with and those vulnerable in your wider community.

Yes. At Fleet St. Clinic, we offer cell-based for those with severe egg or chicken protein allergies.

It is a quadrivalent flu jab protecting against the same 4-strains as the standard quadrivalent flu jab.

You can book your cell-based, egg-free flu jab online here.

Due to ongoing supply issues over the past few years, resulting in delays and cancellations, we have decided to remove the nasal flu spray from our flu vaccine offerings this year.

We offer alternative options for parents with children and young adults under 18:

  • Standard quadrivalent flu jab
  • Cell-based quadrivalent flu jab

If you’re currently feeling sick/ unwell, it is best to wait until you are feeling better before getting vaccinated.

Babies under 6-months should be vaccinated but we encourage mothers to get vaccinated whilst still pregnant so that some immunity can be passed on to the newborn during this time.

Those with complex health needs or allergies to any ingredients within the flu jab should first speak with one of our GPs to determine if they are suitable for the flu jab.

The flu vaccine is not a live vaccine meaning you cannot get the flu from a flu jab.

Most people have little to no side effects following vaccination. The most common side effect is a reaction at the injection site. This can be tenderness, redness and slight swelling. This usually clears up in a day or two and as the flu vaccine is generally given in a patient’s non-dominant arm, this doesn’t cause any issues.

Other side effects may include, headache, muscle aches, low-grade fever and/ or nausea. Again these are short-lived, experienced for no longer than 1-2 days.

Rest and paracetamol is usually advised. Serious side effects are extremely rare.
