Winter Flu Vaccination Service
At Pharmhealth we have trained and qualified pharmacists able to administer the Flu vaccine (Seasonal Influenza Vaccine) for you.
Our immunization service is part of a growing range of services which we administer as part of our commitment to providing convenient and affordable health and wellness solutions.
You can book an appointment online through our appointment scheduler. This allows you to book a time slot that is convenient for you. Alternatively, you can call in to the pharmacy and see if we can do the vaccination while you wait. Please note that by using the online appointment scheduler you are guaranteed a time that is suitable for you. Although we try to cater for everyone you may have to wait a period of time if you call in on spec.
