Where do I get private flu jab in London

Can anyone help. I’m looking for a clinic that will vaccinate dd7 and ds5 in London /south east. They both qualify for school but it will be done on the last week of term in December. I feel it’s too late, too close to xmas and don’t want any side affects & we live with a vulnerable adult who has compromised immune system. None of the pharmacies I’ve tried will do a child! I have googled the life out of it!!!!

You might need to try a travel immunisation clinic or pribpvate GP.

It's seriously difficult to get flu jabs for under 16s (and some chains under 18s) at pharmacies.

But the cohabitants of the seriously immuno-compromised can receive the jab free on the NHS regardless of age. Have you asked your GP if your DC might qualify in those grounds? Because if so, then you can just book them in to a jabs clinic at your surgery.

Isn't this for kids?

talk to your gp. friend’s dc were given the injection by gp as living with a immunocompromised person so they couldn’t have the nasal spray vaccine.

A private GP service like the Smart Clinic might do it. Or The Portland?
